12. The Moderator recognized Vincent Young, Associational Sunday School Director, for a 
report. The following report was adopted. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The 1975-76 Sunday School Year proved to be an exciting time for our Convention and our 
Association. Many churches across the Convention continue to grow because of Bus Evangel- 
ism. A new program of Outreach was also received with great enthusiasm. This program, 
called "ACTION", has been presented to our Association with some of our churches using it 
for their outreach efforts. 

Emphases for the 1975-76 Sunday School Near were centered arount the Reach-Out pro- 
gram and greater involvement of the Pastors and Directors. The Association conducted a one- 
night workshop to promote the Sunday School Emphasis of 1975-76. The workshop included 
3 clinics. One, the Pastor-Director Clinic, sought to promote a greater working relationship 
between the Pastor and the Sunday School Director as together they led the Sunday School 



16 



Council (SS Officers and Teachers) in planning, promoting, and executing an expanding 
Bible Study program in the church. The Outreach Clinic enabled those who attended to have 
a greater awareness of the need to reach out and bring in those not in Sunday School. The 
third clinic previewed the new "ACTION" program of Sunday School Outreach. 

In November our Association was involved in a Sunday School High Attendance Day. Many 
of our churches reported record-breaking attendance on that day. 

During February some of our churches promoted High Attendance using the "Five 
Fabulous Sundays" of February. 

In March our Vacation Bible School Team went to Wingate College for the State VBS Clinic. 
We were delighted to have a complete Team to attend the various age-level conferences and 
two to attend special conferences. One of these special conferences was for the work related 
to the exceptional person. The other special conference was for new VBS work. This con- 
ference dealt with Mission VBS and Back-Yard Bible Clubs. 

In April we held two Associational VBS CTinics. The first, on April I \, a daytime clinic, was 
held at the Mars Hill Baptist Church. The second, April 27, a night clinic, was held at the 
Woodland Bapist Church. These two clinics were well attended, and as a result all of our 
Vacation Bible Schools were improved. 

lune through August were filled with Vacation Bible Schools. Forty-eight Bible Schools 
were reported and one Mission VBS. 

We ask that you as an Association pray for our Sunday School work and its leaders as we ap 
proach a new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. Vincent Young, Director 

1 ^ The Moderator recognized Walter Hill, C"hurch Training Director for his report. Fiis re- 
port as follows was adopted. 

CHURCH TRAINING AND MINISTRIES REPORT 

This has been a year with very few activities in C^hurch 1 raining and Ministries in the West 
Chowan Association. Yet the activities that were planned were very effective and helpful to all 
that attended. The "M' Night program with the Bethel Church being our host was very good 
with a high attendance. The [beacons' Retreat that was held at Chowan College was a great 
success. There were men from many of the churches of our Association. The Youth Night pro- 
gram was very good which was given by a team of Gardner-Webb Students. The Aulander 
Church served our refreshments for us and was a very good host. 

As I look back over the year, I can see where some progress was made, and also discovered 
some new inroads for plans for the coming Associational year with your cooperation. 

We are looking toward an exciting year with another Deacons' Retreat in February for all 
deacons of our Association and Pastors. We urge you now to encourage your deacons to at- 
tend this retreat. Plans are in the making for a Senior Citizen Retreat in the coming months. 
There are plans being made for an Associational Youth Camp for the junior and senior high 
youths of our association. 

Yes, I am getting excited about how we will advance together in a more effective Christian 
witness in our churches and Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter F. Hill, Director 

14. The Woman's Missionary Report was given by Mrs. Walter )ones. Director. She brought 
the following report which was adopted. 

WMU REPORT 

We celebrated the Bicentennial year of our country at our 81st Annual Meeting at the Cashie 
Baptist Church on April 1 , 197(-) with a full house. Cashie was an historical and appropriate set- 



17 



ting for this meeting, as they had already passed their 200th Birthday. The ladies attending 
were beautifully dressed in their period costumes. Dr. Cecil Ray, newly elected Executive Sec- 
retary-Treasurer of North Carolina Baptists, was the guest speaker at the evening session. The 
theme for the meeting was "Let Christ's Freedom Ring." The history of Woman's Missionary 
Union of the West Chowan Association was updated and brief highlights were given during 
the two sessions. 

West Chowan led second in the state in giving to the Heck-)ones Memorial Offering in 
1975. This year we wanted to give more; so in conjuntion with the Bicentennial we completed 
a Cookbook of favorite recipes from across the Association. We sold 2,500 books at $3.50 
each. Proceeds of the profits went to the Heck-)ones Memorial Offering totaling $3,800.00. 
This was in addition to our regular offering in )une. This project was all we expected it to be, 
and more!! 

A "Pastor-Appreciation" Banquet was held in January at the Conway Church with the 
BYW's of the Galatia Church being hostess to the dinner. A tribute wasgiven toeach pastor by 
their church WMU Director. The Pastors and their wives. Church WMU Directors and their 
husbands, and the Association WMU Executive Council and their husbands, were in atten- 
dance. 

The Baptist Women, Baptist Young Women, and Acteens, each held organized Association 
meetings this year, and formed Councils. 

We had to work much harder this year to maintain the Achievement of Distinguished; but 
all the work put forth was well worth the effort. Without the teamwork of the Executive

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 



The Brotherhood seeks to get the men in our churches more involved in missions and ac- 
tive in their work for the Lord. Many of our churches reported a good response to the obser- 
vance of Baptist Men's Day in )anuary when laymen were given the opportunity to conduct 
the entire Morning Worship Service. In the spring, a Training Session was held at Askewville 
Baptist Church. A Men and Boys Rally was held on March 16 at Creech Memorial Baptist 
Church in Ahoskie with Missionary Charles Wiggs of Korea as guest speaker. Our RA Track 
Meet was held at Chowan College in May and the winners participated in the State Track Meet 
at Campbell College on May 21. On August 27-28, Henry Powell, Robert White, and Bobby 
Goodman attended the Training Conference for Regional Brotherhood Workers at Camp 
CaRAway. I urge the churches to establish and upgrade the RA and Baptist Men's programs 
and get the men involved in active Missions in our communities.

HISTORY OF MT. TABOR CHURCH 
1839-1976 



In the year of our Lord November 2), 18 i^), twenty-one members from Meherrin Baptist 
Church met and organized a church and selected for it the Bible name Mt. labor. 

Brother Amos Kaynor served as moderator and Brcjther A. W. Darden as clerk. 

Mt. Tabor is located in the West ("howan Associati(jn, Hertford Cjjunty, on Highway I 'SB be- 
tween Murfreesboro and Winton, six miles from Murfreesboro and five miles from Winton, 
just west of Potecasi Creek. 

The land on which the buildiing stands is a part of the William |ones tract oi land and was at 
first loaned to the Church, but finally sold to it when the building was repaired in 1859 ac- 
cording to the following deed. 

William )ones to William Dunning, Pleasant lordan, R. B. Cobb, Henry Griffith, and |ohn 
Catling, officers of the Church while worshipping at Mt. Tabor, dated December I, 1859 at a

On Novermber I 'i, I8(i I, Brother C. W. Bogart was ordained for the ministry in this C'hurch. 
Elders Hooper, Mcl^owell, hloggard, Delk, and Willianns constituted the Presbytery. W. ( . 
Durham, our fourth pastor, was ordained in Mt. Tabor Church the first Sunday in lanuary, 
1887. The Presbytery consisting of L Iders Bogart, Hoggard, Scarborough, and Wood. ). 1 . Rid 
dick's first pastorate was with this Church. In lune, 1873, W. C. Parker, j. A. Vann, Indiana 
Darden, julia Parker, and )ohn D. Catling were appointed to assist in canvassing the Church 
for funds on an endowment for Wake Forest College. They collected $34. 50. 

Many of our members have wrought worthily and well, but those most worthy of mention 
for their labors are Dr. K. 1. Vann and Mrs. lohn P. Holloman 

Brother K. 1. Vann was ordained for the ministry in this ( hurch in November, 1874. The 
Presbytery consisting of Elders A. McDowell, |ohn Mitchell, K. K. Savage, and |. N. Hoggard. 
Dr. Vann has held several important pastorates in this state and was for a number of years 
president of Meredith ('ollege. Since leaving Meredith he has held positions with the State 
Mission Board. 

Mrs. |. P. Holloman and Miss Grace Brown were pioneers in mission work in this C hurrh 
and other neighboring churches in The West ("howan Association. This part of our history 
brings us up to the year 

During the next several years there were no historical events which are significant 
historically other than the fact that we were blessed by the Lord to make slow progress and to 
work toward the advancement of His Kingdom's work. 

Now I would like to give some very interesting history relating to Mt. Tabor during the ( ivil 
War. 

A detachment of Federal troops came up Chowan River and invaded Winton, N. C. and 
burned the town on February 20, 1862, which was the first town burned in North Carolina 
during the War. The Court House and all its County records which was a great loss to the 
county along with all the other things which were destroyed still affect us today. 

After destroying Winton, our ("ounty Seat, the Federal troops proceeded on their drive 
along the route which is known today as Highway 158 toward Mt. labor. 

The Confederate troops under the command of (^ol. Hint on set up headquarters on the 
Church grounds and prepared breastworks just west of Potecasi Oeek and the trench can be 
seen today that was used by our troops. 

The Confederate troops burned the bridge across the creek to aid in an attempt to stop the 
Federal troops at this point. The major battle was fought at Potecasi ("reek on |uly 2(i, IBbi, 
and a number of references are in our church minutes stating that there were no services at 
the church on account of a Yankee raid at the creek. The Church appointed a committee to 
see Col. Hinton to ask him to take care of the grove which is the C^hurch grounds today where 
his headquarters were located. The ("onfederates were defeated in this battle at the creek so 
the Yankees proceeded on through Murfreesboro. 

The Yankees objective was to drive on Weldon, N. C. to destroy the Atlantic ("oastline 
Railroad leading to Richmond, Va. This railroad was transporting supplies to the Richmond 
area. 

The Yankees were successful in their drive on Weldon until they met Gen. Mat W. Randsom 
who was prepared for a battle at Boon's Mill near lackson who was successful in defeating the 
Yankee troops at this point. 

I continue by referring back to our history and progress during the last twenty-five years. 

In the last twenty-five years we at Mt. Tabor under the leadership of our dedicated pastors 
and by the grace of God have been blessed with the following improvements to our Church 
building. We installed a water system and restrooms. We had the floors finished and carpeted. 
Memorial windows were added in the sanctuary. The choir loft was remodeled. We had new 
pews and pulpit furniture installed. We purchased an organ. We added new light fixtures We 
installed central air conditioning and heating We painted the building and roof. 

We feel humbly grateful to the Lord for his many blessings and leadership and making it 
possible to accomplish these improvements. 

We joined the Union Baptist Church in 1%3 as a field of two churches which has been a 
very great blessing.

36. Henry Powell, Associational Director, gave his report which follows. 

REPORT OF THE 
DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL WORK 

Two questions most often heard by an Associational worker are: "Who is He?" and "What 
does he do?" Both of these are very good questions. 

Since most of our churches do not have Sunday evening and /or midweek services, the only 
opportunity that most will have to see the Associational Director is limited to an occasional 
Sunday morning visit to the church. Since there are 60 churches in the Association and only 
52 Sunday mornings in the year — and if a person just happened to be absent that one Sunday 
morning that the Director was present for Sunday School and the Morning Worship Service, 
that person could go for 2 or more years and never see the Director at his church. Thus the 
question, "Who is He?" 

In answer to this first question, the Associational Director is usually an ordained minister, a 
graduate of one of our Baptist Colleges and Seminaries. Many today are veteran Associational 
workers with years of experience in Associational Mission work. 

He is a paid employee of the Associaiton; rather than an elected official. This means that his 
only authority is that of influence rather than qfficial delegated authority of the Association. 
He has absolutely no authority or control over the elected Associational Officers, Organiza- 
tions, or the churches of the Association. 

"What, then, does He Do?" 

In his relation to the Churches, he seeks to serve them and assist them in any way possible 
when called upon to do so. 

As a minister, there are many opportunities to preach in the churches upon invitation of the 
pastor or the church. This includes the regular Sunday worship services, revivals. Special serv- 
ices such as ordination. Homecoming, etc. This past year I have shared in all of these here in 
our church. 

There are many opportunities to teach: Sunday School on Sunday morning. Vacation Bible 
School (the Adult study of Revelation in 2 churches last summer); the January Bible Study (5 



22 



last lanuary) and other Leadership Training courses, Mission Studies, etc. 

There are also many, many Committee meetings, counseling sessions with committees and 
other church leaders throughout the year. 

On the Associational level the Director works with the Associational leaders. Committees, 
organizations in planning, promoting the work of the Association. Last year there were a num- 
ber of special Associational activities that called for many Committee and individual con- 
ferences: 

Our Associational Church Training organization planned and promoted the week-end 
Deacons Retreat at Chowan College, beginning with Friday supper and concluding with 
Saturday lunch. Our State Church Ministries & Training Department assisted with leadership, 
planning, promotion, and financing. It was a most successful undertaking. There was Baptist 
Youth Night in April. An Evangelistic Team from Gardner-Webb College came to present the 
program. It was an outstanding program. World Missions week was all that could be ex- 
pected. 4h churches shared in the week. Other Associational activities included: Vacation Bi- 
ble School Clinics, Pastor — SS Director Planning Workshops, Conferences for Church Clerks, 
Associational WMU Conferences for Church Leaders, etc. 

We have tried to promote the various emphases and phases of our State & SBC World Mis- 
sions work. 

The Associational office is always open to all of our people for conferences, counsel, or any 
way that we can be of service to our West Chowan Baptist people.

Associational Work. 

37. Report on Christian Higher Education was given by Dr. Hargus Taylor, Chaplain at 
Chowan College. The report was adopted. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 
A careful reading of North Carolina Baptist history reveals that the Baptist State Convention 
was organized primarily for the purpose of establishing a Baptist College. When the Conven- 
tion was formed in 1830, there were 2 church academies already in existence, as well as the 
University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. However, Baptists wanted their own school. 
Wake Forest Institute was begun in 1834. Five years later the Institute became Wake Forest 
College. Thus, Baptists in this state have been closely identified with Christian higher educa- 
tion for 142 years. 

Today, the Christian higher education system of N. C. Baptists embraces six other colleges 
in addition to Wake Forest University: Campbell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, Mars Hill, 
Meredith, and Wingate. Since 1944, these schools have been guided in their development by 
the Council of Christian Higher Education of the Baptist State Convention. The Council is the 
only organization of its kind in the Southern Baptist Convention, and is one of the oldest 
educational cooperatives in America. 

It is not enough that North Carolina Baptists have begun and now support six colleges and 
one university. As important as history and tradition are, they cannot substitute for warm, vital 
relationships in the present. The need for colleges and churches to give fresh attention to their 
partnership and their mutual dependence is always present. Listed below are some of the 
ways this partnership finds tangible expression year after year: 

1. North Carolina Baptists continue to support their colleges through the Cooperative Pro- 
gram and the Baptist College Day Scholarship Offerings on Father's Day. 

2. The colleges continue to provide training for most of the pastors and other church staff 
persons who lead North Carolina Baptist Churches. 

3. Pastors have helped the colleges in their efforts to recruit Baptist young people by fur- 
nishing the names of high school students for contact by the colleges. 

4. The colleges pledge to North Carolina Baptist youth that financial aid is available to assist 
them in attending a Baptist college. No qualified student is turned away for financial reasons. 
Grants, loans, and work scholarships are available. 



23 



S. Churches, pastors' conferences and Associations invite the colleges to send students and 
faculty to speak and lead programs. 

h. Baptist Colleges are anxious to receive invitations to serve the churches and Associ- 
ations. Lach of the colleges is prepared t(j send speakers upon request. 

I here are ') i colleges supp<Kted by the various Baptist state conventions. I he enrollment of 
the 7 N. Baptist colleges comprises about I S% of the t(jtal enrollment of these S \ schools. 
While the Southern Baptist Convention does not own any colleges, there is a strong emphasis 
by the denomination upon (Christian Higher Lducation through the SB(! Lducati(jn Commis- 
sion. In the BAP! ISI t AITH AND MLSSACjL, adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 
the following statement occurs; "I he cause of education in the kingdom of Clhrist is 
coordinate with the causes of missions and general benevolences and should receive along 
with these the liberal support of the churches. An adecjuate system of Christian schools is 
necessary to a complete spiritual program ior Christ's people." 

Baptist colleges reaffirm their gratitude for the support given by Baptists through the 
Cooperative Program. We further reaffirm our faith in and our support of the local church, 
the broad programs of our denomination. 

i8. Mrs. William G. Lawrence, |r., led in the singing oi "When I Survey the Wondrous 
Ooss." 

i*^K Billy Mobley gave a report from the Committee of N ine of the Baptist State Convention.

David Griffin, pastor of Ross and Bethany churches, read from )ohn I and led in prayer. 
Mrs. Ldward Coker read the histcjry of the Potecasi Baptist Church. 

HISTORY OF THE POTECASI BAPTIST CHURCH 

The earliest mention of the Potecasi Church was during a series of revival services held in 
I77M775. In 177 Lemuel Burkett, then 2 ] years old, attended for the first time the Kehukee 
Association meeting. He was placed on a committee of three to investigate the situation in the 
Bertie Church (later named Sandy Run) near Roxobel, N. C. and advise measures which 
would be likely to regain a general fellowship in the church. 

In 177 Elder Burkett was chosen as pastor to the Bertie Church. Under his leadership, the 
Sandy Run Church witnessed a great revival, which began in 1773 and continued for two 
years. Nearly 150 members were baptized in 1773 and names placed on the Sandy Run roll. 

It was during this series of the revival that there was congregation gathered at Potecasi in 
Northhampton County. A number of the members of Meherrin church made a defection and 
joined the congregati(jn at Pcitecasi. Here we continued to worship for thirty-four years as a 
branch of Sandy Run, under the leadership of Elders Lenuel Burkett and lames Vincent. Prior 
to the building oi the first church, the congregati(jn worshipped under a brush arbor. Iq 1775, 
the first structure was built in batten-board style near the center of the village of Potecasi. 

With Meherrin Church on one side and Sandy Run on the other, the meeting house at 
Potecasi was considered a most central location between the two. The Kehukee Associati(xi, 
organized at Kehukee in Halifax county in I7(i5, was at that time C(3m posed of General Bap- 
tists, who held mostly to the Arminian or Free Will Baptist Faith. This body met for its spring 
meeting at Potecasi May lb, 1778. 



24 



At the beginning of the 19th century a great revival swept the country. Hearing of the revival 
news in Kentucky, Burkett set out to learn if reports were true. 

In 1804 there was a meeting of churches north of the Roanoke River, at which time they 
declared that the churches represented were to be Missionary Baptist and have an educated 
ministry. Since the Kehukee Association would not accept this view of the churches north of 
the Roanoke, the Chowan Association was formed in 1805. It was the great revival that pre- 
pared the churches for the forward step. 

In 1807 the Elder Lemuel Burkett, the most influential man among Baptists in N. C. who 
gave direction and and character to Baptists development in the eastern half of the state, died. 
He had been Pastor of Sandy Run Church since 1773. This period of thirty-four years covers 
the time in which he served Potecasi as a branch of that church, and in 1808 Potecasi became 
independent and admitted into the Chowan Association. For eighteen years it was the only 
Baptist Church in Northhampton County. Smith's Church (Mount Carmel) was the second 
Baptist Church, constituted in 1826. 

The Potecasi Church building was built of wood, painted many times because the boards 
were hardwood the paint was not retained. It was repaired and remodeled several times to 
meet the needs. It contained a gallery for the slaves, which later was removed. It had two dou- 
ble-door entrances and a steeple of moderate height. The second of our three church build- 
ings sits today to the rear of the present brick one. Of the slaves, Britton Cumbo was the last of 
his race to be removed from the membership. 

The pastor with the longest years of service was Elder |ohn N. Hoggard, who served 45 
years. 

Reverend Thomas Cotton Britton, the only member ever to become a missionary went to 
China in 1888 at the age of 26, and after 48 years of service on the foreign field, died in 
Shanghai. Another member, Sister Mollie W, Harrell, was president of the first WML) in North- 
ampton County. 

In 188i, the West Chowan Association was (organized, including the counties Hertford, Ber- 
tie, and Northampton. In 1900 (Oct. 30, 31; Nov. 1) the West Chowan Association met at 
Potecasi. The West Chowan Association met at Potecasi in 1931 and again in 1948. 

In 1951 we added a baptistry to our church and cemetery plots were staked off at the rear of 
the building. 

An Extension [department was added in 1952 in order to provide Sunday School for the resi- 
dents of Pine Forest Rest Home. 

In 1958 our Educational Building was completed. It added six classrooms, a kitchen, and 2 
rest rooms to our building plant. 

In 1960 red carpet was installed in the sactuary and a sign giving the name of the church 
and the date established was placed on the lawn. 

In 1963, the new parsonage was built next to the church. The parsonage is a brick ranch 
type with living room, dining room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a garage. 

In 1973, the sanctuary was air-conditioned; and in 1974, the educational building was air- 
conditioned. The yard was landscaped in April 1974 and cement sidewalks were poured 
around the church in November, 1974. 

The church celebrated its Bicentennial on September 7, 1975. 

48. joe McLean, Chairman of the Committee on Ordinations, presented the following re- 
port which was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS 

We rejoice that the Lord has blessed the West Chowan Association during the past year by 
calling two of our young men into the Gospel ministry and has led them through the pr(jcess 
of ordination. We rejoice also that to the best of our knowledge this is a "first" for two of our 
churches. 

Candidate Charles Worth Bridgers, III., met with the Committee in the h(3me of Rev. Donald 
Clinton at 4:00 p. m. on August 6, 1976. After a long conference and prayer period with him, 
the Committee unanimously recommended him for ordination. He was ordained at 8:0(J 
p. m., August 22, 1976 by the lackson Baptist Church. 



25 



Candidate Stephen Leavy Wall met with the Committee at 2:(XJ p. m. on Septem ber 27, 1976 
in the Association office in Ahoskie. In addition to Committee members, the Rev. Henry 
Powell, and the Rev. ). N. Baggett were also present. After a thorough discussion and a prayer 
period with the candidate, the Committee unanimously recommended him for ordination. 
He was ordained at 7: U) p. m., October i, 1976 by the Winton Baptist Church. He is now serv- 
ing as pastor of the Lasker Baptist Church. 

Please pray for these two young ministers, and pray that the Lord will continue to call from 
among us more "laborers into His harvest". (Matt. 9:38).

49. Hargus Taylor presented the report from the History Committee which was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE HISTORY COMMITTEE 

Our Bicentennial Year has provided occasion for renewed emphasis upon the history of 
Baptists, in general, and of the contribution of Baptist to national life, in particular. Our ideals 
of religious liberty and the struggles to attain these — especially among our Baptists forbears in 
Virginia and eastern North Carolina — have been kept before us through Baptist Press and 
other news media. Many churches have used the occasion of the National Bicentennial to 
revive an interest in their own local heritage and history. Among the churches of the West 
Chowan Association, Potecasi Baptist Church celebrated her own Bicentennial in 1976. 

The passing of the Bicentennial Year must not mark the passing of interest in our history and 
heritage as churches. There are church records which need to be recovered and preserved. 
There are church records among us which the ravages of time and unforeseen events will 
eventually destroy, unless they are preserved. The staff of the Crittenden Collection in Baptist 
History at Wake Forest University — the official depository for records of N orth Carolina Bap- 
tist Churches — provides microfilming service at no cost to the churches. We must take fuller 
advantages of these services. The Crittenden Collection and /or the Oscar Creech Collection 
in Baptist History at Chowan College can serve as depositories for the safekeeping of any re- 
cords committed to their care. 

Finally, the Centennial Anniversary of the West Chowan Baptist Association (1983) is ap- 
proaching, rapidly. This anniversay might well be the focal point for an emphasis upon the 
history and heritage of our association of churches. Your committee would welcome any sug- 
gestions towards projecting a meaningful anniversary celebration in 1983, with the realization 
that such an observance may well require a great deal of advanced planning. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. Hargus Taylor, Chairman 
History Committee

REPORT ON CHOWAN COLLEGE 

Chowan College began her 129th year of service to North Carolina Baptist, in general and to 
the Baptists of the West Chowan Association in particular, with Faculty Workshop, August 
19-21, 1976. A feature of the Workshop was a renewed emphasis upon the Christian and Bap- 
tist "roots" of the institution. Major addresses were presented by Dr. Cecil A. Ray, General 
Secretary-Treasurer, Baptist State Convention of North Carolina; and by Dr. Ben C. Fisher, Ex- 
ecutive Secretary-Treasurer, Education Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. 
Workshop participants also pledged their commitment to the "Reaffirmations" of the Chris- 
tian basis for education, as adopted by the Association of Southern Baptist Colleges and 
Schools of the National Colloquium on Christian Education, Williamsburg, Virginia, J une 9-12, 
1976. 

Students began to arrive for orientation sessions on Sunday, August 22. With the comple- 
tion of registration, Chowan's enrollment for the Fall Semester stood at 1,060 — an in 
crease of 34 over the comparable figure for 1975. The further breakdown of the total enroll- 
ment figures notes the following: Freshmen and /or Transfer Students, 646; Sophomore and /or 
Returning Students, 394; Special Students (those enrolled for less than 12 semester hours), 18; 
and Medical Secretarial Interns, 2. The FT E (Full Time Equivalency) enrollment is 1 ,048 — an in- 
crease of 33 over the comparable for 1975-76. 

In addition to the ongoing curricular and co-curricular programs throughout the year, the 
college community is involved in its second ten-year "self-study" since attaining initial ac- 
crediation by the Southern Association of Collefes and Schools in 1956. This self-study pro- 
cess — required of all schools affiliated with the Southern Association — involves a thorough 
analysis and evaluation of the educational program as encompassed by the purpose of 
Chowan as an institution of Christian higher education. It is anticipated that self-study will be 
completed and Chowan's accreditation reaffirmed by the Southern Association in the winter 
of 1978. Every member of the faculty and administrative staff — along with selected representa- 
tive members of the Board of Trustees, the student body, and the Alumni Association — is 
engaged in a committee assignment towards the completion of this self-study project. 



30 



Significant achievements have been noted with regard to the fiscal operation /management 
of Chowan during the past academic year. Of particular note is the fact that the institution 
operated "in the black" for the 18th consecutive year — and this on an operating budget in ex- 
cess of $2,690,000. Apart from student revenues, two other sources of income deserve special 
mention and recognition in this regard: (1) Cooperative Program support received through 
Baptist churches cooperating with the Baptist State Convention; and (2) The Annual Giving 
Fund, deriving revenues in excess of $67,500 — the goal set for the fiscal year. For the long 
range future of the institution, it is especially gratifying to note that General Endowment 
Funds and assets serving as endowment passed the one million mark in fiscal 1975-76. The 
comparable figure in 1957 — at the beginning of the current administration — was less than 
$7,000. 

Chowan College continues to be grateful for her long and honorable relationship to North 
Carolina Baptists. She is not unmindful that this relationehip began among Baptist leaders of 
the old Bertie Union. The institution was nurtured and, literally, kept alive because of the vi- 
sion of the churches of the West Chowan Association, in particular. Her desire is to see that 
the full Baptist constituency is aware of her gratitude for what Baptists do for Chowan and of 
the opportunities for Christian education which Baptists have in Chowan. The "Chowan Sto- 
ry", both of gratitude and opportunity, is related to joint endeavors in Cooperative Pro- 
gram /Stewardship Promotion, through the availability of campus facilities for scheduling by 
c.hurch groups or agencies, and through a concerned effort to attract Baptist youth for her 
educational programs. Churches of the West Chowan Association are invited to call upon the 
college (through the offices of College Relations, the Chaplain to the College, or the Director 
of Summer Programs) for such services as might be available. Several members of the faculty- 
staff engage in pastoral supply work. Student groups are available for youth-to-youth 
emphases among the churches by contacting the Chaplain to the College. 

With special gratitude for the continuing confidence and support of Baptists throughout 
the Roanoke-Chowan region, Chowan College pledges renewed dedication and commitment 
in 1976-77 to those ideals of Christian higher education which have characterized her service 
to Baptist youth thoughout the years of her long history.

CHURCH TRAINING AND MINISTRIES 

The highlights of Church Training and Ministries this year was: "M" Night, 
Youth Night and the Deacon Retreat. 

The Church Training and Ministries Council has met several times seeking 
plans and trying to get new thoughts and ideas for our churches to become 
motivated in the ministries of Church Training: This is a must in the day of cults, 
and religions of false doctrine. No other organization in the church trains or 
teaches church doctrine, and church polity. If our Baptist churches are to stand 
and grow they Must TRAIN their members in Bible Doctrine and Church Polity 
NOW. 

Here are eight values of church training I believe will help any church. 1. 
Church Training aids spiritual growth by helping members to develop a deeper 
doctorinal conviction. It exposes them to more applied Bible study, and helps 
them to see the application of Christian principles in daily living. 2. Church 
Training provides strength through fellowship. Strong bonds of fellowship are 
formed when a group of Christian men and women become concerned for each 
other and discuss their common problems. The result is added strength to meet 
the demands of each day. 3. Church Training helps to build self-confidence 
through more willing to accept places of leadership, are less afraid when leading 
and are more comfortable when witnessing about Christ. 4. Church Training 
Bible activities help members to be able to use their Bibles with greater 
confidence. The many units on evangelism sharpens witnessing ability and 
knowledge. 5. Church Training strengthens Christian values and helps members 
live their faith. One hour of additional spiritual training helps to overcome the 
native influences of a secular society. 6. Church Training strengthens the evening 
worship service because members have a greater feeling of involvement following 
a period of personal Christian training. They also have twice the reason for 



18 



coming on Sunday Night. 7. Church Training prepares youth for leadership. The 
future leaders of the church learn what they believe, how the church operates, 
how to witness, why they are Baptist, and how to apply Christian ethics. 8. 
Church Training conserves the results of evangelism by helping new Christians to 
grow in Christ so that they can win others. 

This can be an exciting year for Church Training in our churches and associa- 
tion. Many Lay people are asking what can I do to get this training to help me. 
The answer is — church training. Begin now making plans for some type of 
training by calling your Church Training Director or Mr. Powell. 



3. Woman's Missionary Union Mrs. Linwood Mitchell 

The report was adopted as follows 

WMU REPORT 

Elam and Bethel Churches were hosts to our annual Fellowship for Pastors & 
their wives, church WMU Directors and their husbands, on January 28, 1977 at 
the Bethel Church. We had a "get-to-know" session. The Reverend Henry 
Stough, retired Associational Director, highlighted the evening's events by 
recalling many humerous events that had taken place during his ministry. His 
recellections were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The group also had a sing-a-long 
session using many of the songs in use many years ago. 

Our Leadership Workshop was held with the Ahoskie and Murfreesboro 
Churches on September 25-26, with 215 attending. 

In February we held a BW Retreat at the Galatia Church with 130 present. If 
you did not attend you missed a wonderful experience. 

Again we chartered a bus for our annual State Meeting in Asheville. 37 rode 
the bus and 6 traveled by car. Some of the ladies from the Chowan Association 
went with us on the chartered bus. 

The WMU Council met 6 times during 1967-77. Some of our members attended 
the SBC in Kansas City and the workshop at Mundo Vista and Ridgecrest. 

Our 83rd Annual Session was held at the Conway Baptist Church on April 7 
with over 300 attending. The afternoon speaker was the Reverend Thomas 
Waddel, Missionary to Zambia, who spoke about the work he and his wife are 
doing there. He also showed slides of the work. The evening speaker was Mrs. 
Edward Gordon, who spoke about her work in the Phillipines. She spoke about 
the needs of these people and their response to what is being done. She expressed 
her deep gratitude for the people of our Association who have been assisting her 
in her work. She exhibited a replica of a typical Filipino house and left it for future 
use of the Association. It is now on display in the Association's Office, 206 W. 
Main St., Ahoskie. The theme for this meeting was "Let the Church Stand Up." 

On May 16 an Associational Day Camp for Missions Friends was held. During 
June, July and August Day Camps were held for Girls in Action. Acteens had a 
study of the new handbook. This study was held at the Meherrin Church with 92 
present from 14 churches. Mrs. Gerald Riggs, newly elected Acteen Director for 
the Associational WMU, led the study. 

Last Christmas our Baptist Women & Baptist Young Women shared with 
other WMU ladies across the state in providing materials through the State WMU 
offices for Christmas gift boxes for the residents at Central Prison in Raleigh. Our 
ladies provided combs & stationary. The response was so tremendous that not 
only did those at Central Prison receive a gift, but also those at the Dorthea Dix 
Hospital. 



19 



Once again our Associational WMU was recognized as Distinguished at the 
State WMU Meeting. We thank all the women for making this possible. May we 
do even more.

Mrs. M. E. Forbes

4. Brotherhood Robert White 

The report was adopted as follows 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

There were 3 Associational Brotherhood events during this past year: 
The first was the Man & Boys Rally. It was held at the Aulander Church. The 

Rev. Chip Funkhouser, pastor of the Aulander Methodist Church, presented a 

color slide program on the Life of Christ, using slides made on his trips to the Holy 

Land. There were 150 present for this Rally. 

A one-night conference for Church RA Leaders & Counselors was held at the 

Earlys Church. 



20 



The RA Track was a tremendous success as usual. It was directed by the 
Track Coach of Chowan College with his athletic department members assisting. 
We had both first & second place winners in the Associational Track Meet to be 
our Team for the State Track Meet at Gardner- Webb College. Our Team did well 
in the State Meet. 

During this coming year we plan a one-night Leadership Conference for all 
Church Brotherhood Officers & Leaders. The date for our spring Men & Boys 
Rally will be set and added to the Associational Calendar just as soon as visiting 
program personalities have been enlisted. The date for our RA Track Meet the 
last of April is already on the Calendar. We anticipate a very good year in 
Brotherhood work this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert C. White, Director

The Department of Church Music continues to encourage participation in our 
summer music camps and in the church music training program offered through 
our State Department of Church Music. 

In the coming year, the Department of Church Music is sponsoring on 
November 11, 1977, a concert by the Fairchild Trio. These young ladies are

17. History of the Galatia Baptist Church Historian 



21 



In 1852, in a log school house located where the R. C. Davis Peanut Sheller 
presently stands, Galatia Baptist Church was organized. Prior to this time a little 
band of Christians met regularly, weather permitting in a brush shelter. The 
church was organized with thirteen charter members. These members were: Mr. 
and Mrs. J. C. Fleetwood, Mr. Arthur Davis, Mrs. Feribee Davis, Mr. Kinchin 
Davis, Mrs. Adelia Davis, Mr. Jessie Davis, Miss Jane Davis, Mr. Jessie Deloatch, 
Mrs. Lucy Parker, Mr. Elias Lewter, Mrs. Becky Hasty, and Mr. Ponnel 
Stephenson. 

The chu .'ch continued to meet in the log school house while a simple 
rectangular shaped buildings was started near the corner of the Galatia 
Crossroads. Because of his love and affection for the cause of Christ, the site for 
the building was donated by Mr. Arthur Davis. Mr. Jessie DeLoatch loaned the 
church one hundred dollars to get the building started. The first building was 
under the direction of Mr. Kinchin Davis, Mr. Jessie DeLoatch, and Mr. J. C. 
Fleetwood. The building was completed and a dedication service held on July 13, 
1859. The dedication sermon was preached by Elias Dodson. 

It was not until June 8, 1867 that the three acre lot given to the church by Mr. 
Arthur Davis was deeded to the church. It was recorded December 19, 1867. This 
was eight years after the church was built and dedicated. 

The first pastor called was B. B. Williams. He served until sometime during 
the Civil War when he was called into service. In his absence the church was 
served by Rev. John Lee. At the close of the war in 1865, Mr. Williams returned 
and took up his work with the church. Others who served the church during the 
next twenty-five years included Rev. Billy Fitzhugh, Rev. J. B. Boone, Rev. John 
Mitchell, Rev. Bob Savage, Rev. Billy Maggette and Rev. P. N. Hoggard. Mr. J. C. 
Fleetwood was ordained and preached at Galatia Church and oiber surrounding 
churches for a period during this time. Mr. J. W. Taylor was also ordained. 



22 



In 1892, the church called Rev. Dancey Cale who served as pastor for the next 
thirty-eight years. 

During the early years, only two preaching services a month was held, one 
Saturday and one Sunday. Sunday School was held every Sunday during the 
year, weather permitting. Conference was held on Saturday and attendance was 
required or a valid excuse had to be given. Also persons who broke the rules of 
the church had to appear before the conference and ask to be forgiven. 

In 1899, a Missionary Society was organized with both men and women 
members. Mrs. Johnnie Taylor was president. It continued this way until 1917 or 
1918 when it was changed to Woman's Missionary Society with Mrs. Clara Piland 
as president. The WMS was divided into groups or circles in 1922, but for lack of a 
leader was soon disbanded. It was reorganized in 1930 with Mrs. Troy Taylor as 
leader. 

In 1910 two small rooms, called "Infant Rooms" were added to the back of the 
original rectangular shaped building. These rooms were to be used for small 
children. 

In 1918, it was decided to add another Sunday Service, making a total of three 
preaching services a month. 

A Senior Baptist Young People's Union was organized in 1923 with Miss Lois 
Smith as president. An Intermediate Union was organized in 1930. 

In 1926, the original church building was sold and a new one begun. Services 
were held in the old building until the new one was completed. The new building 
included a sanctuary with wings on each side to be used as Sunday School rooms. 
The approximate cost of this building was $10,000. The dedication service was 
held the first Sunday in December, 1930. 

Rev. J. M. Duncan served the church as pastor from 1930 until 1945. Rev. 
Lonnie Sasser served as pastor about a year following Mr. Duncan's resignation. 

In August of 1946, Rev. Jarvis Teague came as pastor. There were four 
churches in the field--Galatia, Lasker, Ashley's Grove and Menola. During the 
next few years we had our first VBS and also organized G.A.'s, R.A.'s, and 
Y.W.A.'s. The first parsonage was built in 1947. 

In 1950, a building program was started to add Sunday School Class rooms to 
the back of the church building. A Brotherhood was organized in the early 1950's. 

Rev. Frank Robinson came as pastor in 1951. In the summer of 1952, the 
baptistry was remodeled and the first baptismal service was held in September of 
1952, in the newly renovated baptistry. 

Rev. Herman Dilday came as pastor in October, 1954. Early in 1955, the 
church began to realize that our building was inadequate to meet the needs of our 
membership. In December, 1955, one of our deacons, Elliott Lee Ricks, made a 
contribution designating it for a new church building fund. This fund grew slowly 
for two or three years. 

In August, 1958, building and finance committees were appointed. In January, 
1959, the old church building was moved and the foundation for the present 
educationaly building was laid. This building was completed in the spring of 1961. 
In December, 1961, we had a note burning service signifying a debt free 
educational building and equipment. 

In June of 1962, Rev. Harvey Coppedge came on the field. In the fall of that 
same year the church voted to begin work on the sanctuary and on December 8, 
1963, the dedication service was held with Rev. Herman Dilday preaching the 
sermon. The last note for money borrowed was paid off in December, 1966. 
During the time of the building program a wonderful spirit of cooperation was 
shown. There were many donations made of labor and materials. According to 
records, donated materials, labor and cash, approximately $110,516, was spent on 
the entire building. 

In 1966, the church voted to begin the rotating system of deacons. 



23 



In 1967, the church purchased the Knox Britton home to be used as a 
parsonage. This property joined the church property and was purchased for 
$18,000. The old parsonage was sold and moved away. 

In the summer of 1969, air conditioning was added to the sanctuary. 

Rev. Lonnie Armstrong came as pastor in September, 1974, serving until the 
present time. 

Miss Vickie Barrett has gone out from the church into full time Christian 
service and is presently serving as Minister of Education at Wingate Baptist 
Church, Wingate, N. C. 

Ricky Barnes was licensed by the church in May, 1976 and is a ministerial 
student at Campbell. 

In 1976, we began the Deacon Family Ministry Plan. Under the leadership of 
the pastor, several classes were held to train the deacons for this ministry. 

Early records show an average of twelve baptisms per year for the first sixty 
years of existence. Since 1950, the records show an average of nine baptisms a 
year. 

Mission offerings have been increasing each year for several years, for which 
we praise the Lord. 

We have a full-time program with two worship services each Sunday and 
mid-week prayer service. Church Training is held each Sunday Night. 

Our present church enrollment is 355 resident members and 103 non-resident 
members.

LET THE CHURCH REACH OUT - THROUGH ASSOCIATIONAL 

MISSIONS: 

25. Report of the Director of Associational Work Henry Powell 



REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL WORK 

I am happy to share with you a brief summary report of my activities this year 
as your Director of Associational work. It has been a good year; a busy year- for 
which I am grateful. There have been more opportunities to serve this year than 
ever before. I hope that this trend will continue and the opportunities to serve 
will increase yet more and more. 

During the year I have been in 49 of the 60 churches. A very special effort will 
be made to visit these remaining 11 churches just as quickly within the next few 
weeks ahead. 

I have either visited or taught Sunday School almost every Sunday morning, I 
have preached for the regular Sunday Worship Services as well as ordination 
services. I shared in several ordination services for both deacons & ministers, 
spoke at mid-week prayer services; taught the January Bible Study book in 2 
churches, shared in several dedication services, mission studies, regular WMU 
programs. 

There were many, many individual, committee, & group conferences 
concerning various phases of the work. 

The work of the Association, as well as that of the Baptist State Convention & 
the SBC was promoted primarily through the West Chowan Baptist News. 
Except for one or two occasions, the Newsbulletin went out each month. On two 
occasions, 2 or 3 separate issues went out during the same month. In September 
there were 3 separate issues for a total of 2,300 mailed. If there are those who do 
not receive the monthly Associational Newsbulletin who would like to do so, just 
let us have the name & complete mailing address and it will come your way 
beginning with the next monthly issue. There is no charge for it. We hope to keep 
on enlarging the mailing list until every Baptist home in our area will receive the 
Associational Newsbulletin each month. 

Since all the Powell children are now away from home (during the regular 
school term), Mrs. Powell and I have been a little slower and later in getting to the 
office in the morning. We are usually in the office Monday through Friday by 9 
A.M. We go to lunch about 12:30. One or both of us are usually back in the office 
in the afternoon. However, sometimes there is a need for both of us to be gone at 
the same time. This does not happen very often, but usually when it does someone 
comes by and cannot find us. We try to keep this to the very lowest minimum 
possible. If you cannot find either of us here, try the home at 425 N. Academy 
Street. Call anytime you need us, anytime 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are 
here for one purpose only--to SERVE. 



25 



There are several priorities in the days just ahead.* 

1. For the past several weeks Mrs. Powell 'has been working on the 
Statistical Church data for the Survey Study. We had hoped to complete this 
study by this time but it proved to be more detailed than we had expected. We 
will continue to work at this in the days just ahead, hoping to complete this first 
basic step in the Survey-Study by the time the General Board meets in December. 
The completion of this Study is basic to our long range planning for the work of 
the Association for the next several years and we are dedicated to its completion 
as quickly as possible. 

2. Another continuing need is for a greater involvement in Associational 
activities on the part of our people. The purpose of the Association is to serve, to 
be a channel through which the churches share together in mutual helpfulness to 
each other. The more our people become involved the more useful the work will 
be. 

We need to prayer-support of all our people. This is absoutely essential to the 
success of the work. 

We need for a greater participation in Associational activities. We major on 
activities which the individual churches, particularly smaller ones, cannot do as 
well by themselves as we can do together. The more we share in these activities 
and the more successful they are, the more useful and helpful to everyone they 
will be. We have had some very good and successful meetings and activities this 
past year; we look forward to even greater opportunities of fellowship and sharing 
for the mutual benefit of all in the future. 

And like everyone & everything else, we need increased financial support. 
There are still many unmet needs. Some of these are: a. Complete self-support. 
We depend on State Missions for about 7% of our monthly income. There are 
many Associations much smaller than we are that do not receive as much State 
Missions help as we do. Surely an Association of 60 churches, nearly 17,000 total 
church members, and nearly $2,000,000 total church income each year should be 
able to adequately support its Associational work without having to rely on 
outside help. We ask only 2%; if each church will come up to this suggested 
amount we will be able to support our work without having to go to Raleigh for 
help. 

We need to upgrade our Associational Office. We need an electric 
stencilcutting machine. Such a machine would enable us to put out a much better 
quality of publicity materials, but would save many hours of tedious stencil 
cutting, not only for those in the Associational office, but also for our churches. 

Several of our churches are interested in a cassette tape ministry to their 
shut-ins. A tape-reproducing machine in the Associational office would enable all 
of our churches to record church services, reproduce as many copies of the tape as 
needed, and provide these quickly and efficiently to all of their shut-ins. 

We need a photo-copy machine. Not only would this be used in the 
Associational office but would also be available to the churches to use as needed. 

We need additional visual-aid equipment. We have a 16mm sound projector. It 
is available to all churches anytime you wish to use it. The old slide-filmstrip 
projector is about shot. We need several slide & filmstrip projectors & screens. 

We need an overhead projector. 

One of the fastest growing areas of visuals in teaching is the video tape. These 
are far less expensive than regular film, especially sound films. The Home Mission 
Board and the Brotherhood Commission are already turning in this direction in 
their teaching-training materials. These materials are to expensive for every 
church to try to have them, but if they were available to the churches through the 
Associational office, they could be used very successfully by all churches. This is 
an area we need to watch very closely. It is a growing ministry of the Association 
to the churches. 



26 



The Association is coming into its own. For many years it was the "red-headed 
stepchild" of our SBC Mission work. But that is no longer the case. Both the State 
SBC are realizing that the Association is the vital link between the church and the 
State & Southern Baptist Convention. It is the key unit in oiir World Mission 
work. One of the purposes of the recent special drive for State Missions was to be 
able to channel more State Missions funds in the future into special State Missions 
projects that will originate at the Associational level. Dr. Ray, our State 
Convention General Secretary-Treasurer, is dedicated to the Association as a 
growing vital influence in the work and ministry of the State Convention and the 
SBC. 

There are great days ahead in the work of the Association. May we be found 
faithful in taking advantage of every growing opportunity to work together and 
more effectively share together in our ministry and service for our Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry Powell 



LET THE CHURCH REACH OUT - IN BENEVOLENT MINISTRIES: 

26. Report on our N. C. Benevolent Institutions: 
a. N. C. Baptist Hospital 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL 
REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 
1977 

The beautiful stained glass window in the front of Davis Chapel at Baptist 
Hospital has three large panels, each depicitng an aspect of Christ's ministry: 
healing, teaching, and preaching. The windows serves as a reminder to the staff 
that Baptist Hospital has also been commissioned to this three-fold task. 

The hospital's primary task, obviously, is healing and it attempts to obtain and 
use the best personnel and equipment available for the healing task. The medical 
staff consists of competent, dedicated men and women in all the various specialties 
of medicine. Persons with rare and complicated medical problems are referred to 
Baptist Hospital by their family physicians for treatment. Last year 158,863 visits 
were made in the hospital's Outpatient Department and the Bowman Gray 
Department of Clinics. There were 22,365 admissions to the hospital for a total of 
193,942 patient days. These patients came from 90 counties in North Carolina, 
from 29 other states and from 3 foreign countries. 

Baptist Hospital is also involved in teaching. In cooperation with the Bowman 
Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University, it helped to train 1,188 
students last year for careers in medicine and allied health fields. In addition, 
there were 87 graduate students in the basic sciences. The hospital also provided 
clinical facilities for 483 student nurses from 3 nearby schools of nursing and for 
120 students in other allied schools. The School of Pastoral Care last year enrol- 
led a total of 75 students in various levels of Clinical Pastoral Education. 

The hospital also has a preaching ministry. There is preaching in the formal 
sense at least four times a week in the worship services held in Davis Chapel. In a 
less formal sense, the Christian Gospel is proclaimed daily by staff, students, 
patients and others who witness to their faith in word and deed. 

In all of these ministries. Baptist Hospital is mindful of its Christian heritage 
and its strong tie with the Baptist State Convention. This tie is maintained and 
strengthened through the services of capable, dedicated trustees who are elected 



27 



by and are responsible to the Convention. The tie is also strengthened through 
the finanical support from the churches; last year $294,324 was received through 
the Cooperative Program and $405,947 through the Mother's Day Offering. 

Several members of the hospital staff have assumed active roles in 
denominational life at the association level and the state convention level, as well 
as in their local churches. For the past five years hospital personnel have assisted 
in Cooperative Program promotion in at least two associations each year. Staff 
members are pleased to do everything possible to strengthen the denominational 
tie, believing that this tie adds a dimension to the ministry of healing, teaching 
and preaching. 

Mother's Day gifts for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1977, were $411,225.56 
compared to a total of $405,946.52 for the preceding fiscal year.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 
1977 REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 

The past year in your North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging has been 
one of the fullest and most exciting in the twenty-six years that the Homes have 
been ministering! 

Of keenest interest was the ground-breaking service for the new Western 
North Carolina Baptist Homes, on the pearson Estate on Richmond Hill, in 
Northwest Asheville, last October, when more than a thousand people from our 
Western North Carolina Baptist Churches, as well as many others throughout the 
State, were present. It was a thrilling moment indeed when Trustees, Staff, and 
Residents of the Homes, Pastors, and other Church Leaders latched on to ropes, 
attached to a hugh bulldozer, pulled together and helped to move the first dirt at 
the site, he heralding the beginning of the construction of your sixth Baptist Home 
for the Aging. 

Construction is now underway for this lovely Western North Carolina Baptist 
Home, which will initially accomodate 50 people. 

Another exciting venture is the construction of four duplex apartments at the 
site of the Hayes Home in Winston-Salem. These apartments will care for 16 
additional persons and will be ready for occupancy in the fall of 1977. 66 more 
people will be served in our Baptist Homes family in the next two years. 

Gifts from our Baptist people have been very encouraging during the past year 
through the Cooperative Program and through the third Sunday of February 
Offering. These sources supply 35% of the total budget of the Homes and are 
used continually to supplement the care of the majority of the residents who 
cannot pay their full cost of care. They are love gifts indeed and are a life-line for 
those whose needs could not be met without them. 

The needs of older persons in our society today are great and are 
overwhelming. Plans are in the making for an accelerated ministry in our North 
Carolina Baptist Homes that will touch an ever increasing number of persons. 

These plans will call for a greater concern and commitment on our part than 
ever before. The future of our North Carolina Baptist Homes is as bright as the 
promises of God, and, in that future, the Lord, and these older people in our midst, 
will be looking to you to share in meeting the needs as we reach out and serve 
more of these dear ones who desperately need help. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William A. Poole 
Executive Director

INFORMATION FOR CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION REPORT 
Annual Associational Meetings - 1 9 7 7 

Baptists of North Carolina are deeply involved in the ministry of Christian 
Higher Education through the support of six colleges and one university: Camp- 
bell, Chowan, Gardner-Webb, Mars Hill, Meredith, Wingate an Wake Forest 
University. During the 1976-77 academic year, 13,733 persons were enrolled in 
the seven schools. The number graduating in May, 1977 was 2,493. 

One strong emphasis of Baptist colleges is the preparation of pastors, 
missionaries and other church vocation colunteers. In the fall of 1976, there were 
846 persons preparing for church-related vocations at North Carolina Baptist 
colleges. 

The recruitment of more Baptist young people is a major concern of the 
colleges. Pastors and other church leaders are urged to encourage the youth from 
Baptist churches to attend a Baptist college. During 1977, the pastors have given 
the names of more than 6,000 prospective students to the colleges through the 
Council on Christian Higher Education. These students have received information 
from the colleges and from the Council office. 

Most of the students attending a North Carolina Baptist college receive some - 
form of financial assistance. Each of the colleges pledges to assist needy students 
financially in order to make available the educational experience at a Christian 
college. An offering is received on Father's Day each year to provide aid for 
North Carolina Baptist young people. Students who need to apply for financial aid 
should make application to college early in the junior year of high school. Grants, 
loans and work scholarships are available for those who need them. 

North Carolina Baptist colleges continue to be grateful for generous financial 
support through the Cooperative Program. The colleges reaffirm their support 
and partnership in missions with the churches, and offer the services of faculty, 
students and other campus resources to make the Bold Mission emphasis of 
Southern Baptists a vital and successful ministry. 



1977 BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 

What is perhaps the greatest challenge faced in all the history of Southern 
Baptists is before our people for the remaining 23 years of the 20th century. It has 
been called "Bold Missions Thrust," and the success of the venture is yet to be 
determined. There is no doubt concerning the importance or the motivation for 
the undertaking, but there is uncertainty as to whether the motivating message 
will be successfully communicated to some 13 million Southern Baptists, and to 
our more than 34,000 churches. Without adequate communication channels, the 
program cannot succeed. 

The heart of the program is to evangelize and congregationalize the world's 
population, and the thrust is confronting all human beings everywhere with the 
gospel, and affording them the opportunity of knowing and trusting Christ as 
Saviour, and then leading them to understanding of His lordship. 

The program is so big, and the challenge so great, that every Baptist must be 
involved to make it successful. Not since Jeus presented his disciples the goal of 
going into all the world has such boldness been demonstrated. 



29 



The most difficult problems faced in our churches are related to communi- 
cations. When people are uniformed, poorly informed, or misinformed, they get 
into trouble. When they know what is taking place in their local congregation and 
in the denomination, interest is generated and cooperation results. Openness is 
therefore important, and the purpose of the BIBLICAL RECORDER is to keep 
Baptist church members informed concerning involvement in their denomination, 
and in the Christian world. 

In light of developments presently underway in our denomination, it is 
important that every Baptist church member in N. C. receive the BIBLICAL 
RECORDER weekly. Already more than 1100 churches in our state are providing 
through their budgets for the RECORDER to go to all resident families. The 
Southern Baptist Convention has adopted a circulation goal of eight million for 
state papers by 1980. The SBC believes that every Baptist family ought to be 
receiving its state Baptist paper. RECORDER circulation approaches 120,000 but 
should be increased in the immediate future to 150,000. 

If your church is not sending the RECORDER to resident families at the 
present time, arrangements should be made immediately to do so by 
incorporating it in your church budget. Costing less than half the price of a 
postage stamp per issue, it is delivered by U. S. mail directly to your home 
address. 

The RECORDER doesn't cost; it pays! Your church will be a healthier 
congregation if you provide the RECORDER for your resident families. It is the 
most widely read piece of literature received by North Carolina Baptists. No 
investment pays greater dividends.

J. Mar se Grant, Editor 
BIBLICAL RECORDER

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 
REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 
EASTERN AREA - 1 9 7 7 

Baptists of North Carolina provide a ministry of love and care to children, 
young people and their families. The program is more than rooms and meals and 
activities and recreation. It's more than buildings and grounds. The care of 
children is missions. . .reaching out with a helping hand; it is evangelism. . . 
sharing the joy of life in Christ; it is love and affection. . .the giving of hugs and 
kisses and friendshp; it is education. . .teaching an appreciation for the finer 
things in life; it is restoration. . .enabling families to function again. 

Campuses at Mills Home, Thomasville;Kennedy Home, Kinston; Odum Home, 
Pembroke; and Broyhill Home, Waynesville-Clyde continue to serve as centers of 
service and operation in their respective areas of the state. 

Foster Home Care, a statewide program of the Homes, is vital to numbers of 
children needing special help. Additional foster homes are needed throughout the 
state. We welcome opportunities to talk with prospective foster parents about 
this area of service. 

Emergency Shelters at Forest City, Charlotte, Burlington and Henderson are 
meeting a critical need. They provide a ready resource for children who need help 
immediately. During a period of one to ninety days responsible planning is made 
for the child's future. 

The special wUderness therapy programs for boys and girls at Kennedy Home 
are meeting needs of children who cannot be served in conventional type 
programs. This program needs to be expanded to serve other areas of the state. 

Odum Home construction made progress during the past year. The Sara 
Catherine Deal Recreation Building and the residence for the resident director 
have been completed and were dedicated on September 30, 1977. Excellent 
progress is being made on the Indian Memorial Cottage which is being financed 
and constructed by the Indian people of Pembroke and surrounding area. 

Social Work and Family Resource Centers enable us to work with families in 
providing services to children, family rehabilitation, family education and 
preventive services. These Centers are located at Waynesville, Asheville, 
Charlotte, Thomasville, Burlington, Raleigh, Kinston, Fayetteville and Pembroke. 

The Child Development Center on the Mills Home Campus at Thomasville 
provides a demonstration program for churches who are interested in establishing 
services for preschool age children In nursery school education, day care and 
kindergarten. We welcome opportunities to assist churches any place in the State 
who want to develop this type program. 

The Cooperative Program and the Thanksgiving Offering will be extremely 
important in enabling us to continue these basic and essential ministries to 
children and their families. We encourage and welcome churches and individuals 
to visit any of our facilities and to see for themselves how meaningfully this great 
mission effort is being conducted to honor and glorify Christ.

1977 

SUGGESTED ASSOCIATIONAL STEWARDSHIP COOPERATIVE 
PROGRAM REPORT 

Will you lead every member of the church where you serve to give a tithe or 
more of his income into the church treasury and lead the church to give the 
suggested amount to the Association plus giving from 10% to 50% of church 
receipts through the Cooperative Program? 

The Southern Baptist Convention theme for this year is "Bold Missions". "But 
you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shaU be 
my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the 
earth." This command of Jesus in Acts 1:8 clearly calls for boldness on the part of 
His followers. These words emphasize our commitment to missions and mission 
support. 

In 1 Corinthians 3:9, the apostle Paul says, " . . .we are labourers together for 
God". We must continually challenge one another as Baptists to minister in 
Christ's name through the church, through the association, and through the 
Cooperative Program in bold support of missions at home and around the world. 

Commitment to a bold mission task calls for specific action on our part as 
individuals and churches. 

WE RECOMMEND THESE GOALS: 

1. Every church in the association BOLDLY ADVANCING THEIR GIVING 
through the Cooperative Program for world mission support, and giving 
the suggested amount to Associational Missions. 

2. Every church in the association increasing the percentage of the total 
budget income given through the Cooperative Program. 

3. That every church seriously consider its responsibility to develop 
Christian stewards and determine to elect and train a stewardship 
committee to assist the church in developing Christian stewards. 

4. That every church conduct a stewardship emphasis this year. This coming 
year, the stewardship theme is "Bold Believers in Giving Through a 
Growing Commitment". 

5. That an associational stewardship conference be held in order to assist 
churches in planning and conductng their stewardship programs. 

6. That every church double Cooperative Program giving and associational 
missions giving by 1982. 



SUGGESTIONS FOR ANNUAL ASSOCIATIONAL EVANGELISM REPORT 

1977 

The Pastor's Evangelism Planbook 1977-79: EVANGELIZING AND 
CONGREGATIONALIZING has already been sent to all churches. It includes 
various emphases on The Evangelistic Church on Bold Mission. Additional 
information on this theme will be shared with pastors and church leaders. 

"Bold in Creative Witness" was the theme of the 31st Statewide Evangelism 
Conference ai the War Memorial Auditorium, Greensboro, during February 7-9, 
1977. About 2,400 pastors and lay persons were present to hear the challenging 
messages of the evangelistic speakers. 

Over 500 youth and adults came to the North Carolina Baptist Assembly for 
the Youth Ministry Week - June 13-17, and many different types of decisions for 
Christ was made public by youth. The emphasis was on youth evangelism, 
vocational guidance, and recreation. 



32 



About 12,000 youth, pastors, and adult leaders are planning to attend the 7th 
Statewide Youth Evangelism Night - August 19 - at the Greensboro Coliseum. 
Jim Wilson and Larry McFadden of Orlando, Florida were the guest preacher and 
soloist. All youth who make decisions for Christ are contacted by pastors and 
adults with regard to specific follow-up counseling. 

Thirty-six churches across the state are having one week youth revivals and 
youth witness training under the direction of four Summer Youth Evangelism 
Teams. Let us rejoice in all the decisions for Christ made by youth. 

Excellent reports have been received on Lay Renewal Weekends and Ministry 
Evangelism Weekends in various churches. The Division of Evangelism 
cooperates with the Brotherhood Department in this phase of the work. 

Associations and churches are now involved in the Youth Evangelism Strategy 
which includes these four areas: Leadership Family; Touch Ministry; Discipleship 
Groups; and Joy Explosion. W.O.W. - Win Our World - has to do with specific 
witness training for youth in the local churches. 

65 associations have participated in one week Lay Evangelism Schools in 
recent years with over 14,400 youth and adults receiving lay witness training from 
1,175 churches. More lay persons need to become involved in consistent 
witnessing to unsaved individuals. 

Several thousand persons have attended evangelism clinics and conferences 
held in associations across the state. Good reports on revival meetings and 
city-wide crusades have been received. 

The 32nd Statewide Evangelism Conference will be held at War Memorial 
Auditorium, Greensboro, on February 6-7, 1978. 



CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE 

The N. C. Christian Action League has been engaged in a two pronged attack 
on the moral front during the past year. A real effort has been made to curb the 
flow of pornography, and the liquor-by-the-drink issue has been opposed at every 
turn. 

In the legislative program of the League a questionaire was sent to each 
candidate for the State Senate and the House of Representatives asking for views 
on the question of the disemination of hard-core pornographic materials. Another 
question went so far as to suggest a state-wide vote on the matter of regulating 
and controlling distribution of pornographic materials. 

Senate Bill No. 539 was introduced by Senator I. Beverly Lake, Jr. of Wake 
County. It is hoped that this law will regulate and eventually do away with 
hard-core pornography in North Carolina. The bill was amended many times, but 
the strength of the statute remains intact. This new law will permit the solicitor 
or the attorney general to proceed against pornography. 

Another bill has been enacted that will prohibit the display of pornographic 
magazines and other materials on racks in public places where they can be viewed 
by minors. Still another law was passed that wiU make it illegal to use minors in 
the production of pornographic materials. 

The effort against liquor-by-the-drink began before the election of Senators 
and Representatives last year. An all out campaign was conducted to ascertain 
the views of candidates on the question of more liberal laws in relation to the sale 
of alcoholic beverages. Many committed themselves to oppose any such legisla- 
tion and became voting members of the 1977 Assembly. We counted heavily upon 
these friends to hold the line against the encroachment of any new legislation that 
would merchandise whiskey like apples and oranges, and no such legislation was 
passed during the 1977 session. 



33 



Senate Bill No. 735 was introduced in May. This bill would have given a vote to 
any county, city or town which had an ABC store to determine if liquor-by-the- 
drink sales would be authorized. The bill would have allowed the addition of such 
sales on top of "brown-bagging". In other words, a restaurant which qualified 
could have had both types of permits. This would have given North Carolina one 
of the most liberal systems in the United States. Due to some vote-swapping to 
revive the pornography bill, this measure passed the Senate by a 24 to 23 vote. 
The proponents of the bill, realizing that it was headed for defeat in the House by 
at least 15 votes, made a last minute move which sent the bill back to the House 
ABC Committee, where it will await next year's session of the General Assembly. 

This gives us time to organize our forces and to make contacts with our 
Representatives, You spoke loud and clear in opposition in the state-wide 
referendum in 1973, and we don't believe you have changed your minds. You are 
urged to contact your Representatives and either encourage him in opposition to 
the bill or request his support for the defeat of Senate Bill No. 735. 

The Chrisitan Action League appreciates the support which has been given 
this past year, and reminds you that we can do only that which you enable us to do 
through your contributions. 

Respectfully submitted. 

The Christian Action League of N.C. 

D. P. McFarland, Executive Director 



ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 
New Program Highlights Year 

In North Carolina as of March 31, 1977, 2787 staff members of 2196 churches 
and associations are participating in the Southern Baptist Retirement Program; 
2491 in the Family Benefit Section; 1275 in the Age Security Section and 240 in the 
Variable Benefit Section. 

In 1976, the Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention recommended 
a new retirement program which was approved by all the state Baptist 
Conventions. The new program called the Southern Baptist Retirement Program 
will go into effect January 1, 1978. 

Detailed information will be presented to churches in the early fall with a 
ROUTE 10 promotional theme, according to Darold H. Morgan, president of the 
Board. 

The Board paid $17,138,343 in benefits to 11,925 widows, retires or disabled 
members in 1976. During its 59 years of service, the Board has paid more than 
$158 million in retirement and protection benefits. 

A 13th Check amounting to one month's income was mailed for the eleventh 
time to annuitants. The combined amount of this extra benefit came to $830,525. 

Most members benefit from a decision to increase the interest rate for figuring 
retirement benefits. Annuitants began receiving larger checks as of January 1, 
1977. 

For almost 45,000 members, the Board held in trust funds totaling 
$472,218,669 for retirement benefits for the year ending 1976. 

The Annuity Board also administers life, medical and disability insurance 
programs, which reflected increases in membership. 

Additional information concerning the Annuity Board and its programs of 
retirement and insurance may be obtained from the state convention officers or by 
contacting the Annuity Board, SBC, 511 North Akard Building, Dallas, TX 75201.

THE NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION, INC. 
May -19 77 



May 1977 

I. Statement of Purpose 

The establishment of the North Carolina Baptist Foundation as an agency of 
the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina was approved in 1919 and 
chartered in 1920. The objectives of this agency of the Convention were clearly 
stated in its charter: 

"1. To promote the making of gifts ... for the cause and objects fostered 
by the members of the missionary Baptist denomination in the State of 
North Carolina, in their cooperative undertakings, and to provide a 
way of securing greater uniformity of purposes, powers, and duties of 
administration in the management and distribution of the gifts so 
made; 

"2. To receive, own, hold, administer, and distribute gifts of any kind . . . 
to be used for the promotion of the Missionary Baptist cause in general 
or any specified object of the Missionary Baptist denomination ..." 
The Foundation continues to strive toward fulfilling the objectives stated in its 
charter. In so doing it will serve more as a trustee than as a foundation, as 
foundations are presently defined. As trustee, the donor or benefactor makes 
decisions relative to specific or general recipients of trust income. 

II. Growth 

The growth of assets held was slow in the early years and reflected directly 
the amount of time given to promotion by lay volunteers interested in the 
endowment of Christian ministries of the Convention. At no time in its history has 
the Foundation idea lacked respect of denominational leadership in that it was 
undergirding the financial support of all Baptist mission endeavors. During a 
twenty-five year period, however, the Directors of the Foundation sought 
unsuccessfully to obtain financial assistance for an operating budget for staff and 
promotion program from the already established institutions of the Convention. 
As the Convention became stronger financially, it provided the operating funds 
that permitted the Directors in 1962 to employ its first full-time staff member, C. 
Gordon Maddrey of Ahoskie and Raleigh.

III. Organization and Operation 

The Foundation is the only agency or institution receiving its total operating 
budget from the Cooperative Program. Its fifteen member Board of Directors is 
elected by the Convention, three each year selected for five year terms. The 
Directors through an Executive Committee has responsibility for reviewing 
budget needs and recommending its request to the General Board Budget 
Committee. 

The staff consists of the following employees: the Executive Secretary, Edwin 
S. Coates; Director of Estate Planning, Sara Ann Hobbs; Staff Assistant, Dianne 
Babb; Treasurer, Leon Spencer; and the Legal Counsel, Tom Dimmock, a Raleigh 
attorney, who is retained for frequent consultation and for preparation of 
contracts, agreements and other matters related to the work of the Foundation. 

Each staff member has distinctive tasks to perform in assisting with the 
attainment of Foundation goals, but all are charged with responsibility for being 
adequately informed as to the needs of the institutions and mission endeavors 
supported by the Foundation. They also must interpret these needs and be 
responsible for relating them to the individuals using the services of the 
Foundation. 

The emphasis of the Foundation is Stewardship. We seek to create an 
increased awareness of and interest in a total Christian commitment as it involves 
life and possessions. Certain aspects of our efforts are simply interpreting the 
Christian tenets regarding one's trusteeship of God's gifts. Other factors in our 
ministry involve technical and legal matters as they pertain to estate planning and 
distribution of assets. An understanding of these principles provide opportunities 
for individuals to become better stewards. 

As the individual Christian is to be a responsible trustee, so the Foundation is 
to be responsible as trustee of these gifts entrusted to its safe-keeping. It is the 
desire of the Foundation staff and Directors that effective and efficient 
management of operating funds and trust funds be a prime characteristic in 
administering our duties. We seek to be prudent in the investment of assets and 
seek maxium financial support of all Baptist institutions and causes. 

The Foundation provides a unique channel for persons to provide tangible 
financial assistance for all Christian ministries fostered by Southern Baptists - 
forever - by naming the Cooperative Program as beneficiary of trust funds. This 
option, of course, is one of many. The specific institution or mission cause may be 
named as trust beneficiary or any combination of these.

IV. Methods Used 



There are three prime methods now utUized through which gifts of possessions 
can be transferred to benefit Baptist endeavors. The most frequently used, and 
the source of most assets now held by the Foundation, is the testamentary gift. 
The charitable remainder trust has proved to be a valuable instrument to 
encourage lifetime transfers of assets. The third method is through the hving 
charitable trust. 

The testamentary gift is simply the transfer from an estate to the charitable 
cause by statement in a will. 

There are a variety of approved methods of transferring property, securities, 
or money and in turn receive annuity payments for life. Many of the annuity trust 
instruments meet requirements of government regulations permitting tax relief 
during the lifetime of the donor. 

An outright gift of assets, where income or principal is immediately available 
for charitable causes, provides many benefits both to the donor and to the 
ministry being supported. In some instances, the residual estate to heirs can be 
increased through this method of giving. 

Any new endowment, as administered by the Foundation, will provide 
permanent financial assistance to our institutions as well as the total Convention 
mission. As many individuals have stated upon establishment of a trust, they feel 
that they have become a part of what they are supporting. One Director of 
Associational Missions expressed with determination, when sharing the 
Foundation report with the 1975 Baptist State Convention, "Through our 
investment in the Foundation that supports the Cooperative Program perma- 
nently, we now are the Cooperative Program."

The Womens Missionary Union held its second annual meeting here on 
October 28, 1896. 

The West Chowan Baptist Association held its Fourteenth annual associational 
meeting here in October 1896. The Annual sermon was preached by Reverend R. 
D. Cross. 

In 1923 Rev. Oscar Creech came and served until December 1933. While he 
was here the Church saw the need of a better Church building and more 
classrooms to take care of the growing Sunday School. The Church appointed 
Brethern A. 0. Kiff, W. R. Willoughby, George Hoggard, J. W. Godwin, Jr., and 
A. E. Godwin as a building committee. They presented the design of the present 
Church building from the back of the pulpit to the front of the Church. The 
Church accepted this plan and acted on it. Work commenced in 1925. While the 
work was proceeding on the new building the Church held its services in the 
school house across the road. The money to build the new Church was borrowed 
from the Bank of Ahoskie. In financing this project the men of the congregation 
was asked to donate the proceeds from what was raised on an acre of land and the 
women were asked to donate the money from the sale of Sunday eggs. 

The Lord wonderfully blessed the Church in paying off the notes. All were 
paid off before the due and the work was finished in 1926. 

The ceremony of laying the cornerstone for the new building was conducted on 
Sunday August 6, 1926, by the Woodmen of the World, of whom Brother A. 0. Kiff 
Church clerk was an official. 

In October 1926 the Church bought new pews for the Church at a cost of 
$500.22. The new Church was electrically wired, powered by a Delco unit. 

First record of music in this Church was when officers were elected in October 
10, 1926. Sisters Mary Overton pianist for Church, Evelyn Kiff for Sunday School. 

In a called conference December 1929 the Church voted to have Sunday 
preaching services twice a month. Prior to this time it had only one Sunday 
preaching service a month. There was always preaching at regular Saturday 
conference meetings. 

Dedication services was held on our Lords day of Sunday, July 4, 1930. The 
Reverend H. F. Brinson was asked to preach the dedication sermon. 

January 1932 Church records showed a membership of 65 males and 80 female 
members. A total of 145 members. 

July 7, 1934 Church voted to do away with monthly Saturday morning 
conference. Church voted to have rules of Decorum revised. This was to be done 
by the Board of Deacons. 

Reverend A. P. Mustain came January 1934 and served until January 1944. 
Rev. Creech came back in April 1944 and served until October 1948. Rev. T. J. 
Faulk came in October 1948 and served until March 1949. Rev. A. P. Mustain 
came in September 1949 for the third time and served until April 1955. Rev. Earl 
Sapp came in October 1955 and served until October 1956. Rev. W. E. Carter 
came in 1957 and served until 1962. In 1959 while Rev. W. E. Carter was here the 
church bought a new piano. In 1961 the Church began to study building plans for 
more classrooms. 

In 1961 the Church had a total membership of 157. 

After Reverend W. E. Carter resigned as pastor the Reverend Oscar Creech 
served as interim pastor until the Church called the Reverend J. D. Wyatt as 
Pastor in May of 1963 and served until July 1968. In February 1964 while 
Reverend J. D. Wyatt was here the Church again began to plan for more 
classrooms. The Church elected Brothers Thurman Hall, Franklin Phelps, Luther 
Godwin, Sisters Lois Ross and Mary Bernice Willoughby as a building committee. 
Brother George Brinkley, Garland Ross and W. R. Willoughby was elected as a 
finance committee. 



38 



In March 1964 the Church approved and adopted the plans submitted by the 
building committee at a cost of $7,315.00. Work started immediately. Trustees 
elected were Thomas Chamblee, Thurman Hall, and Franklin Phelps. 

The Church called the Rev. Jonathan Twisdale February 4, 1969 and served 
until March 29, 1969, and he left for reasons of his own. 

The Rev. J. I. McMahan came in August 1969 and served until June 30, 1974. 
While Reverend McMahan was here in 1972 the Church refloored the sanctuary, 
did a new dropped ceiling and added four new folding doors to the adjoining 
classrooms and replastered the classrooms at a cost of $5,000.00. In 1973 new 
pews was installed in the sanctuary and the two small classrooms adjoining the 
back of the sanctuary. All new pews was donated by Church families in memory 
of a loved one. This was done at a total cost of $2,964.06. In 1974 the Church 
added the pews to our side classrooms and put a new top on the Church at a cost of 
$2,139.19. 

On August 9, 1974 the Reverend J. N. Baggett came to serve the Church as 
interim pastor. In 1975 the Church installed a water coller that had been donated 
to the Church by L. M. "Mutt" Brinkley, Sherwood Gowdin donated a water 
pump, purchased an organ, rebuilt the choir, purchased an organ, rebuilt the 
choir, purchased a typewriter, installed new gutter pipe around the new part of 
the building, had the picture painted behind the choir, regraveled the driveways 
before Reverend Baggett began serving us as regular full time pastor instead of 
interim pastor. After he became pastor in August of 1975 the Church purchased a 
trailor for pastor and family study, purchased new pews for choir, put uv>wn deep 
well, paneled the walls of the sanctuary and classrooms, put new ceiling in 
classrooms adjoining sanctuary at a total cost of $10,288.62. 

In 1976 the Church bought two folding doors for classrooms at back of 
sanctuary, built a new pump house, installed heat and air conditioning, carpeted 
the sanctuary and adjoining classrooms, purchased an Electrolux vacuum cleaner, 
an intercom for nursery at a total cost of $11,010.69. 

In January 1977 at the monthly business meeting the Church voted 
unanimously to install a Baptistry. The Board of Deacons and the Church 
treasurer are serving as a committee to get the work done, which is now in 
progress and almost finished. In July 1977 the Church had a Church sign board 
put in front of the Church. The Youth of the Church is in the process of raising 
money to buy a Church Bus. 

In March 1977 the young women of the Church met with the district Baptist 
Young Women director, Mrs. Mary Ann Brittain and the President of the Church 
Baptist Women Mrs. Margaret Godwin and organized the Church's first Baptist 
Young Women organization with nine members. Total church membership now is

Constitution 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of 
North Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by the churches 
connected with this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said 
churches, together with the officers of this Association, and chairmen of all 
standing committees. Each church of one hundred members and under shall be 
entitled to two Messengers, and for each additional one hundred members, an 
additional Messenger, provided that no church shall have more than ten 
messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and 
enlist its membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the 
promotion of the entire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of 



9 



our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and 
effectiveness in our Association, our State and Nation, and unto the uttermost 
part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the 
sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative 
councO, nor a court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend 
measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There 
shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the local church and there shall be full 
recognition of the autonomy of the Association. However, in view of the combined 
wisdom, piety and intelligence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest 
consideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects 
and principles of this Association, and holding the same doctrines and ordinances, 
may be admitted into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All 
applications shall be referred to the Membership Committee for study. Church 
desiring membership should give notice by making application one year in 
advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that 
consistently refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West 
Chowan Baptist Association. Any irregularities which are reported shall be 
referred to the Membership Committee who will report their findings to the next 
Associational meeting. The relationship may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of 
the messengers one year after irregularities have been brought to the attention of 
the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church shall be requested to contribute a percentage of its 
gifts, or so much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the 
Association and for direction of the promotional education and missionary work of 
the Association. This percentage or amount shall be sent to the Associational 
Treasurer monthly by each church Treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a 
Letter on the form adopted by the Association with such additional information as 
it may deem fitting. , - 

Article 9. Any church wishing to dissolve its relationship with the Association 
in order to transfer to another association may do so with a majority vote at any 
regular Associational meeting.

REPORT OF EDUCATION AND PROMOTION COMMITTEE 

The Education and Promotion Committee of West Chowan Baptist Association 
made great efforts in trying to inform area residents of the work of our 
association. 

The promotional effort was intensified May 21-28 when the committee 
coordinated Associational Emphasis Week. During the week spots were aired on 
local radio stations promoting the work of the association. Area pastors prepared 
devotions for radio stations in Ahoskie and Murfreesboro. 

In addition to radio coverage, the Education and Promotion Committee 
coordinated newsreleases in area newspapers. The Associational News Bulletin 
helped promote the week. 

The committee worked hard at promoting a positive image of the association 
throughout our region. To our knowledge this campaign was the most aggresive 
associational promotion effort carried out in our area. 

It is our hope that more people appreciate the ministery of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robbie Parker, Chairman

17. Lonnie Armstrong, pastor of Gaiatia Church, gave the Missions Committee 
report. 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The missions committee has been reorganized this year. We stand ready to 
work with any project that the churches of the association feel would be worthy of 
looking into. 

One of our primary mission projects is the Migrant Mission Chapel at Rich 
Square. Theodore Myrick, a black minister, is directing the work on a part time 
basis. He is employed through the Missions Division of the Baptist State 
Convention. Funds for the work come from: the North Roanoke and West 
Roanoke Union of the General Baptist Convention, the Willow Oak Methodist 
Church of Rich Square, and the West Chowan Baptist Association. These monies 
are sent to the Baptist State Convention designated for the Migrant Mission work. 
Added to these designated funds is money appropriated by the Home Mission 
Board and the State Convention to make up the budget for the mission. Rev. 
Myrick's salary, travel and lodging expenses are paid from it. Local expenses are 
taken care of through a local treasurer, Lamar Wheeler, pastor of Woodland 
Church. Rev, Wheeler reports that $959.90 has been paid this year for utilities, 
literature, minor repairs, supplies, etc. The insurance on the chapel was paid from 
the allocation in our budget. 

Rev. Myrick is required to send a written report to the Missions Division each 
month, stating exactly what has been done in the work and ministry for that 
month. A copy of this report is given to the local treasurer and to West Chowan 
Association. The mission pastor conducts Bible study and worship every Sunday. 
A mid-week prayer meeting is held each v/eek. A week of inspirational preaching 
and worship was held in May with both black and white pastors participating. The 
offerings taken were given to the Mission for local expenses. 

This mission project is a good example of what can be done when people decide 
something needs to be done. We encourage all of our churches to be involved in 
misson projects in their communities. Let our committee know if we can be of any 
help. 

God is continuing to bless in a wonderful way. May we continue to praise Him 
and serve Him. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lonnie R. Armstrong, Chairman 



18. The Evangelism Committee report was given by Jack Mace, pastor of 
Center Grove and PowellsvUle Churches. 



EVANGELISM REPORT 

BOLD MISSION THRUST. Double baptisms, double Co-operative Program 
giving, win the world to Christ by the year 2000. These are bold statements, but if 
they ever become realities there must be involvement by every church, every 
pastor, every Christian. When we are involved, then, and only then, will we be 
making a BOLD EVANGELISTIC THRUST through the local church. 

"The Evangelistic Church on Bold Missions" was the theme of the 32nd 
Statewide Evangelism Conference at Greensboro during February 6-7, 1978. 



20 



Evangelistic speakers challenged about 2,400 pastors and lay persons to involve 
church members in bold evangelism. 

Over 900 youth and adults attended the largest Youth Ministry Week during 
July 3-8 at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly. All persons participated in 
specific training sessions. 

Over 12,000 youth, pastors, and adult leaders attended the Eighth Statewide 
Youth Evangelism Night at Greensboro on August 18. Bill Hogue, Director of 
Evangelism Section, Home Mission Board, was the preacher. Special music was 
presented by Richard and Judy Bradford from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Young 
People also had parts on the program. Follow-up work is always assigned o 
pastors with all youth who make decisions. 

Sixty-eight associations have participated in one week Lay Evangelism 
Schools in recent years with 15,000 youth and adults receiving Lay Witness 
training from 1,245 churches. Consistent witnessing to non-Christians is essential. 

Excellent reports on revival meetings, city-wide crusades, and associational 
evangelism clinics have been received. There has been good response to 
associational youth evangelism emphasis. 

Christians need to lead unsaved persons to make genuine commitments to 
Christ and to guide then in their spiritual development. This is evangelism. 
Assistance is available to help any church plan and develop an ongoing program of 
evangelism. Free notebooks are available and training sessions will be held in 
associational clinics across the state. 

The Thirty-Third Statewide Evangelism Conference will be held at 
Cumberland County Memorial Auditorium, Fayetteville, February 5-6, 1979.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

This is my first year as Sunday School Director of West Chowan Baptist 
Association. We had several associational wide meetings. The first meeting was 
pertaining to Sunday School Action Program which was held at Meherrin Baptist 
Church. The second meeting was the Bold Mission Leadership Conference held in 
Ahoskie First Baptist Church. In August there were three area Sunday School 
planning meetings. 

I had the privilege of attending the Bold Mission Sunday School Leadership 
Conference at Ridgecrest in August. It was a very inspirational and enlightening 
meeting. 

Our first emphasis for 1978-79 is REACH OUT 78. The emphasis should have 
started October 1 and then run through November 19. This is the plan that should 
have been followed: 



21 



1. Preparation 

2. Reach Out to Win Week .... 

3. Reach Out Enrollment Week 

4. High Attendance Day 

5. Enrollment Follow-Up 



. September 24 - October 1 

October 15 -21 

October 22 -29 

. ...October 29 

October 29 - November 19 



Our second emphasis is a Sunday School Action program which will be held the 
last week in February 1979. 

The third emphasis will be Vacation Bible School. I want every church in our 
association have a Vacation Bible School with one third of them merit, one third of 
them advanced, one third of them distinguished. It is time for us to step up our 
quality of Bible teaching in our schools. 

The fourth emphasis will be for every church to prepare for a better year in 
Sunday School by observing Preparation Week September 30 - October 7, 1979. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Gerald K. Riggs 
Sunday School Director

fflSTORY OF RICH SQUARE BAPTIST CHURCH 



This is an update in our church history. The complete history of Rich Square 
Baptist Church appeared in the 1969 MINUTES OF WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST 
ASSOCIATION. 

In August 1969 the church bought the Warren property adjoing the church 
property for $3,500.00.

In November 1975, Mrs. Faye Danford was called as our Minister of Music. She 
served in this capacity until AprO 1978. 

In 1976 our church provided 20 BAPTIST HYMNALS for Roanoke Valley 
Nursing Home. 

The parsonage was renovated in 1976. This project took six months to 
complete. Our church observed Open House at the parsonage on October 10, 1976. 

We observed our 125th anniversay as a church on April 16, 1978 with dinner on 
the grounds. The next week our church was in revival with the following former

HISTORY OF REPUBLICAN CHURCH 



Republican Baptist Church was organized in 1834 and admitted to Chowan 
Baptist Association in 1835, Its charter members were drawn from the 
surrounding churches of Connaritsa, Cashie and Sandy Run. The history of the 
first 18 years of the church's existence has been lost or was not recorded. What 
information we have concerning that period has been secured from tradition. 

They say that the name "Republican" is a development from the word "public." 
Before the organization of the church, a building stood at the forks of the road 
where Republican now is. All public meetings both of political and religious 
nature were conducted here; therefore, it was spoken of as the "public meeting 
house" and finally "Republican." 

It seems that soon after the organization of the church, a small house of 
worship was erected. This was painted red and was generally called "The Little 
Red Church." When the Little Red Church became too small to suit the needs of 
the community, a larger house was built costing $1,300.00. 

In 1863, the Republican Church pulled out of the Chowan Association and went 
into the West Chowan Association. 

In 1864 there were 249 members (54 males, 125 females, and 70 blacks). In 
1865 the church had grown to 285 members. At one time, new converts were 
baptized at Burden's Mill. 

The building which we are in now was constructed in 1912 and since then has 
been remodeled and various features added and removed. These changes include: 
adding side classrooms, painting of the interior and exterior, addition and later 
removal of a fence surrounding the church, and removal of spit boxes. Delco 
battery lights were used until 1945. 

From 1958-70, Republican was in a church field with Edge wood Church. 

In recent years a new piano was bought, the porch cemented, railing were 
added, new carpet installed and draperies hung. In 1977 new furnaces were 
installed. 

Danny Poyner was called as our pastor in 1976. 



42. Henry Powell, Director of Missions, gave his report "Sharing Christ 
Through Associational Missions." 



REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL WORK 

It is a joy to report to you another very busy and (I hope) successful year in 
West Chowan Association. In the 32 years that I have served as an Associational 
Worker in North Carolina, I cannot remember a busier one. I am grateful for the 
opportunity that has been mine this year to serve in this work. 

There has been a very positive and optomistic attitude throughout the year. A 
large part of this has been due to the enthusiastic spirit of our Moderator, Bobby 
Cross. His spirit has permeated the work of the Executive Committee and 
General Board. It is contagious. It has been expressed in many ways throughout 
the year in every phase of our work. 

There has been a very fine spirit of cooperation on the part of the associational 
leaders. Meetings have been well planned and better attended than ever before. 

We began the year with a Workshop for Church Library workers. The Baptist 
State Convention's Sunday School Department provided a well-trained special 
worker to lead the Friday night-Saturday morning & afternoon conferences. This 

29 



meeting was designed for a very limited target group. Though the attendance 
was deliberately small; those attending stayed with it to the very end at 
mid-Saturday afternoon. It was a good meeting. 

The annual session last October was unusual. It was the first time I had ever 
been involved in inviting an SBC Executive to come out to speak to an 
Associational meeting. Mr. A. R. Fagan, Executive Director-Treasurer of the 
Stewardship Commission, SBC, spoke to a packed house at Galatia on Tuesday 
night. 

Also in October, nearly 200 Sunday School Officers & Teachers from 30 of our 
60 churches came to Ahoskie for a two night Better Bible Teaching Clinic. The 
State Sunday School Department's age-level department directors came to lead 
the conferences. 

Baptist Youth Night in March was a "standing-room-only" event at Seaboard. 
A Youth Team from Campbell College presented the program. The summer 
Apostoli Team was present for introduction. The Seaboard church "roUed-out- 
the-red-carpet for us, providing both fellowship and refreshments at the close of 
the meeting. 

The Bertie Union meeting in April was the best I have attended. It was also at 
Seaboard. The attendance was about the same as usual; but the program was 
outstanding. Three of our pastors and Larry McClure, newly elected Area 
Missionary for the Baptist State Convention, brought challenging messages on the 
nature and work of the Church. 

Other meetings throughout the year are too numerous to mention. VBS Clinic, 
Pastor-Sunday School Directors Planning Conference, Church Clerk's meetings, 
as well as regular organizational meetings. 

Another "very" special event this year, another first, was the coming of the 
Apostoli Team to our Association for the summer. The final report is not 
complete, but they were here for 10 weeks working in some 15-20 different 
churches as well as assisting in several Associational events. I have heard nothing 
but commendation and gratitude for the work of these four young people in our 
midst this summer. 

In May 14 of our Associational leaders spent 3 days at Ridgecrest with about 
800 Associational Officers & Leaders from across the State to prepare for the 
Associational Key Leader Conference in August. This was the climax of the entire 
year. I admit to partiality, but as far as I am concerned, if we had done nothing 
else this year, this one event would have justified it all. Never has a meeting been 
planned for, promoted, and attended as this one. We will continue to see the 
results of it for months to come. Already church councils have gone back to their 
churches, discussed their involvement in Bold Missions, and adopted many of the 
suggested goals as a program of work for the years to come. For this we are 
deeply grateful. 

As for my own personal involvement, I have worked with the Associational 
leaders in planning, promoting, and implementing the various phases of the 
Associational program. This means many personal and committee conferences. I 
have also visited and served in the churches as opportunity came. Preaching, 
teaching, conseling, sharing, planning, promoting. Through the Associational 
News Bulletin, I have tried to promote all phases of our State & SBC World 
Missions program. 

Again, let me say that it has been a good year. We have not arrived but we are 



30 



moving in the right direction. There are great things, big & exciting ahead. The 
best is yet to be. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry Powell

but a joyous day indeed for members of Siloam Baptist Church to be moving 
our church to its final home site. 

Siloam Church was established in 1885 by Bythiel Leggett who started a 
small service in his front yard. From his yard the little church moved to an old 
store building. In 1889 the first building was built on a site on the Speller 
Ferry Road. In 1929 the building was moved to a site on the St. Francis Road. 
The site was loaned to Siloam by the Bertie Bond family and the building has 
remained there for the last 49 years. 

On July 25, 1978, the Siloam Church was again moved several miles to its 
final home on a site on the Cedar Landing Road. This site was donated by 
members of the church so that a new sanctuary is ready and then this portion 
will be used for Sunday School rooms. 

Siloam members are anxiously waiting for the completion of our new 
building and anticipating the continuing grovi;h and prosperity in the service 
of the Lord. 

WOODLAND: Purchased a church van; church records were microfilmed; 
parsonage was air conditioned; had a G. A. Recognition Service.

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of 
North Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by the churches connected with 
this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together with the 
officers of this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of 
one hundred members and under shall be entitled to two Messengers, and for each ad- 
ditional one hundred members, an additional Messenger, provided that no church shall 
have more than ten messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and enlist its 
membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the promotion of the en- 
tire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our 
Association, our State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty or 
rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court 
of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness for their 
adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition of the 
autonomy of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the 
Association. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the 
Association, it justly claims the very highest consideration and regard for itself, its ob- 
jects and its recommendations. ^

proved. A motion was also made and adopted that the suggested goal for Associational 
support be increased from 2 to 3%.

creases in utility costs-the Home Utility item being increased from $1500 to $1800. This

At each meeting reports were received from the Associational organization directors,

Committee which was received as information. He also presented the Associational 
Calendar for 1980 which was printed in the Book of Reports. 



REPORT OF THE EDUCATION-PROMOTION COMMITTEE 

Webster defines education as "the process of developing knowledge." He defines 
promotion as "an act of stirring up interest." 

The Education and Promotion Committee of the West Chowan Association feels 
that only when people are well informed about the ministries of their association can 
they really get excited about its work. 

In a letter to all pastors our committee encouraged the churches to get involved in the 
hfe of the association. We further encouraged the pastors to use every available re- 
source to promote the work of our association. As a committee, it is our hope that because 
you have been informed you will promote association missions in order that the Lord's 
work may continue to be done in our area. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robbie Parker, Chairman 

17. The Moderator called on Franklin Stansbury for a report on the work of the 
special Office Committee that had been elected by the Executive Committee during the 
past year. Mr. Stansbury reported that the Committee first decided that the Main Street 
office location was not the best one and proceeded to locate a more desirable office 
space. Such a place was found at 1 16 N. Mitchell, just around the corner from the Main 
Street location. The new site was presented to the Executive Committee and approved. 
Since the new office would cost $50 per month less than we were paying for the Main 
Street location, the Office Committee was given permission to spend this difference, 
approximately $500 for the remainder of the Associational year, to prepare the new 
location for occupancy. The improvements to be made were: a partition between the 
front Secretary-Reception area and the inner Director's office, carpeting the inner of- 
fice, tile for the bath and work rooms, shelves/bookcases for the inner office and work 
room. Much of the materials and all the labor was donated so that the total cost was 
only about $300.00. Only two minor things remain to be done: A sign for the front door 
and bulletin boards in the two offices. 

18. The Treasurer's report was presented as information.

19. Donald Clinton, Chairman, presented the report of the Nominating Committee. 
There were 2 vacancies for age-level leaders in the Sunday School organization. Motion 
was made that the Associational Sunday School Director enlist these to complete his 
Associational Sunday School staff. This motion carried. There being no nominations 
from the floor, motion was made that the report of the Nominating Committee be ac- 
cepted and the suggested officers elected for the coming year. The motion carried. (See 
Associational Directory, page 1, for the officers for 1979-80.) 

21. Tommy Hayes led in singing "Blessed Be The Name" accompanied by Mrs. 
Daniel M. Spell on the Piano. 

22. The Moderator called for reports of the Associational organizations. First, the 
Associational Sunday School report by Director Gerald Riggs. Mr. Riggs' report con- 
tained 5 recommendations. Motion was made that these recommendations be adopted. 
The motion carried. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Reaching people and involving them in purposeful Bible study has made progress in 
the West Chowan Baptist Association this year. 

We had our Action Campaign in February with 11 churches participating. Ap- 
proximately 523 new members were enrolled in Sunday School during the Campaign. 
Considering the weather that we had, which was SNOW, I feel we had good results. 

The 2 Vacation Bible School Clinics were held on the same day with a morning and 
night sessions. More of our churches need to start early in securing their VBS workers, 
so they can attend the Association VBS CHnics. 

The Key Leadership Conference in August was well attended by the SS Directors. 
Since the Key Leadership Conference, I have had 2 invitations from churches inviting 
me to come and help them in upgrading their SS organization and setting goals to reach 
more people in Bible study. 

I have 5 recommendations that I would like for you, the messengers of the West 
Chowan Association, to consider: 

1 . To promote High Attendance Day in our Sunday Schools, which is the last Sunday 
in October each year. 

2. That we set a goal of every officer and teacher in our Sunday Schools to be in at- 
tendance at the Central Training School, November 5-6, at the First Baptist Church, 
Ahoskie. 

3. That every church adopt a Bold program of Outreach for the Church Year 1979- 
80. 

Example: Action program, Growth Spiral, New Reaching... Age-Graded books, 
and the Outreach ideas age-group booklets. People Search Guide Series, etc. 

4. That we encourage every church to encourage their Youth and Adults to read the 
Bible through in 1980. 

5. To encourage every church to adopt the Sunday School Leadership Diploma Plan. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gerald K. Riggs, 
Sunday School Director 

23. Franklin Stansbury, Director, presented the Church Training Report which was 
accepted as information. 

CHURCH TRAINING REPORT 

It as been a privilege for me to serve as Associational Church Training Director 
during this past year. I have been involved in many activities as I have carried out my 
responsibilities.

25. The Brotherhood report was presented by the Director, Thomas Hayes. 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

The Brotherhood of West Chowan Baptist Association sponsored 3 major events 
during the past year. The first was the Royal Ambassador Basketball League. We had a 
good participation with 7 churches represented: Ahoskie First Baptist, Creech Memorial, 
Elm Grove, Meherrin, Murfreesboro, and Union. The Older Crusaders (ages 9-11) of 
the Murfreesboro Church was the winner in their age-group; Meherrin was the winner 
in both the younger Junior High & Older Senior High age-groups. Meherrin represen- 
ted us in the Region of the State Convention Play-off. 

The second event was the Men & Boys Rally held at the Buckhorn Baptist Church. 
There were 14 churches represented. The program was on Volunteer Missions. Royal 
Ambassadors Jon Royce & Mike Bunch of the Murfreesboro Church, who had been to 
Mexico on a Mission project, and Baptist Men G.T. Pittman & Willie Ray Harrison of 
the Askewville Baptist Church, who had been to the Carribean on a Mission work 
project, presented slides and a report of their work. 

The third event was the RA Track Meet. There were over 150 boys who participated 
in The Meet. The winners represented West Chowan in the State Track Meet atCamp- 
bell College. The West Chowan Team once again brought home the State Champion- 
ship Trophy. Those who placed first in the State Meet then went on to the Tri-State 
North-South Meet at Wake Forest and helped North Carolina RAs win. 

A regional workshop for all age level Leaders was held at Edenton. 

There is a tremendous need for strengthening the work of Brotherhood in the West 
Chowan Association. There were 29 churches who reported no Brotherhood work in 
1978. We men have a call to become involved in Missions and we have the responsibility 
to provide for our boys missionary education. RISE UP O MEN OF GOD! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thomas G. Hayes 
Brotherhood Director 

26. Mrs. R.G. Whitley gave the Music Report for the Director, Mrs. William 
Lawrence, who was ill and could not attend. 

MUSIC REPORT 

Christian music is an expression of the Soul's inmost dedication and committments 
to God. In the year 1978 - 79, the Committee of Church Music of West Chowan Baptist 
Association has encouraged the enlistment of people in our church music programs. We 
gave assistance to individual church music groups upon request. We advanced the Bold 
Missions goals through church music by encouraging choir groups to establish a prayer 
chain within its own group. 

The adult choir materials workshop which was planned did not materialize. 
However, this workshop is to be January 21 & 22, 1980. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mary R. Lawrence

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ROSS BAPTIST CHURCH 

Ross Baptist Church, organized in 1804 and named in honor of its founder, Martin 
Ross, is the 7th oldest Baptist Church in Bertie County. 

Martin Ross was one of the major leaders of the early Baptist movement in North 
CaroHna. He was born in 1762 near Williamston, N.C., to parents of Scottish descent. 
The family had moved to this area from Virginia. After service in the American 
Revolution, he took up his life's work, the ministry. He was baptized in 1782, married 
in 1783, and hcensed to preach in 1784. He was an early proponent of the missionary 
cause. He helped found the first society for that purpose in 1805. He married for the 
second time in 1806, his first wife having died in 1796. Beginning in 1808, he worked 
toward a "Meeting of General Correspondence," a forerunner of the Baptist State 
Convention. Ross died in 1827 at the age of 65 after a full and active life which had in- 
volved him in church affairs throughout the northeastern part of our state. 

Ross Baptist Church, first organized as "Ross'es Log Meeting House", met in the 
beginning under the trees beside Cucklemaker Swamp, about Vi mile from the present 
building. Soon a log building was erected which had a board shed in front. Other, more 
elaborate, buildings followed. The building took on its final shape in 1904. Though 
termed a remodeling, the work done was quite extensive. The building was weather- 
boarded on the outside and paneled with ceiling on the inside. In the early 1930s, the 
area behind the pulpit was divided into classrooms for Sunday School. In 1935 a piano 
was purchased to replace the organ. In 1945, the interior was cleaned and varnished. 
Electric lighting was installed the next year. The parsonage was built in 1948. The 
balcony area was partitioned into classrooms in 1950. In 1963, new pews and carpet 
were installed. The pulpit area was enlarged and an organ, given by Mr. W.R. Lawren- 
ce, was added as well. In 1970 the exterior of the church was bricked. A Church 
Education Building was added in 1972. 

Ross Baptist Church was originally a member of the Kehukee Association. In 1806 
that Association split over the question of missions. Ross and those churches favoring 
missions formed the Chowan Association. In 1883, the Chowan Association split along 
geographical hnes. In 1884 Ross joined the West Chowan Association, of which it is 
still a member. Association meetings have been held previously at Ross in 1890 and 
1904.

1979 ANNUAL OF THE 




Due to difficulty of transportation, church services were held only once a month until 
1918. These services took place on the 4th Saturday and Sunday of the month. In 1918 
the church began holding services twice a month, as it does to this day--with the ad- 
dition of evening services. Membership records go back as far as 1884. At that time, the 
membership was 536. The number climbed over the years until 1911 when there were 
842 members. The membership has decreased since then due to the founding of more 
accessible community churches. The membership is now 292. 

There has been a Sunday School at Ross since at least 1884. Meetings were held every 
Sunday except during December-March. In the early days, there were only 2 classes, 
one for men and one for women. Enrollment was 378 in 1890, rose to 456 in 1911, and 
has decreased over the years to the present 172.

37. Henry Powell, Director of Associational Work, gave a report of his work for the 
past year. 

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL WORK 

Would you be so kind as to grant me one moment of sentimentality as I bring you my 
5th report as your Director of Associational Work! It was just 5 years ago the second 
Sunday of December, December 8, 1974, that I officially began my work here in the 
West Chowan Association--here in this pulpit at Ross Baptist Church, as it was my 
privilege to preach the dedicatory sermon for the dedication of the new Education 
Building that had just been completed and occupied. 

I had moved my family to Ahoskie during the Thanksgiving holidays and returned to 
western N.C. to complete my work there in preparation for the move to the West 
Chowan. I arrived in Ahoskie late Saturday evening, December 7, and then came to 
Ross Sunday morning for my first official speaking engagement. That was the first of 
many very pleasant moments of fellowship with the people here as well as the other 59 
churches of the Association during these 5 years. 

Much has happened during these 5 years for which we are deeply grateful to God and 
to the people of our West Chowan Churches. 

This past year has been no exception. It has been a full and busy year. 

Since January 1 I have been in 49 of the 60 churches-either speaking or visiting at the 
time of a regular congregational service. Late last year I decided that I would make a 
special effort, beginning January 1, 1979, to visit every church just as quickly as 
possible. I began at the top of the list alphabetically, Ahoskie, First Baptist, Ashleys 
Grove, etc. Things went very well the first 6 months. By July 1 I had visited 44. Today, I 
still lack 1 1 getting around to all 60. I had hoped to be in every church at least one time 
during the first 9 months but found it impossible to do so. I shall continue this visitation 
schedule, hopefully visiting all 60 churches at least one time during the year. Then I will 
start over again. 

It is my purpose to visit all the churches as regularly as possible. However, just run- 
ning over these 3 counties & visiting churches is not my primary responsibility. Top 
priority is ministry and service. Let me remind all of you again that you make my 
schedule. My little black datebook is open for you to fill in when I can help in any way. 
Do not hesitate to let me know when you need me. 

Several important things have happened this year. First was the decision of the 
Executive Committee and General Board to seek a more desirable location for the 
Association's office. Rev. Frank Stansbury was appointed by the Moderator as Chair- 
man of the Office Committee. The Executive Committee approved the location at 116 
N. Mitchell as recommended by the Committee. An amount not to exceed the differ- 
ence in cost of office rent for the year was authorized for the committee to spend for 
necessary improvements to the new space. Much labor and materials were donated. Ex- 
cept for one or two minor things, the office at 116 N. Mitchell is complete and being 
used. Although slightly smaller in square footage than the N. Main Street location, it is 
more compact and usable with much less wasted space. If you have not been by, you 
are invited to come by anytime. 

Two new machines in the office have improved the efficiency of the work and also 
made the office more useful to the Associational leadership and the churches. The latest 



—25— 



1979 ANNUAL OF THE 



of these is the Electronic Stencil Maker. This first year we will cut approximately 1,000 
stencils on this machine. This will be a savings of several thousands of dollars in cost as 
well as hundreds, perhaps thousands, of man hours saved. These machines, the Stencil 
Maker, the paper Copier, are for the use of our churches as well as the Associational of- 
fice. There is no charge for the use of this equipment; and we invite you to use it as 
needed. 

The various Associational Meetings have been well attended. Associational Leaders 
have sought diligently to be well prepared. We have tried not to have meetings just to 
have meetings; but have sought definite purpose for any Associational Meeting that we 
ask you to attend. 

Another very pleasant surprise to everyone has been the remarkable improvement in 
the financial situation. If the present trend continues, the work of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association will be firmly established on a solid financial foundation. 

It has been a very busy, and I hope a good, year--for which we are grateful. But we 
must not be satisfied to rest on the accomplishments or the laurels of the past. Let us 
not think for a fleeting moment that we have arrived; we have not. We are heading in 
the right direction; but we have not arrived. There is still much to be done. We stand on 
the threshhold of a new decade--the 1980s. We survived the decade of the 70s with some 
turbulent change. We approach the 1980s with an air of expectancy and excitement. 
The challenge is great; the future is bright. 

Let us leave this 97th annual session of the West Chowan Baptist Association with a 
dedication and determination that this Association will become the greatest avenue of 
service that our churches have ever known and that being a part of this Associational 
fellowship will become the most meaningful relationship that our churches have ever 
shared. 

A Baptist Association has been defined as being, "A fellowship of Baptist churches 
on mission together in their setting". Let's make that a reality in the West Chowan 
Association in the days ahead. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry Powell

WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



THE HISTORY OF MARS HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

In 1853, in a small community near what is now "Trap", in Bertie County, the 
people met in a school house about Vi mile from the present site of Mars Hill Baptist 
Church and engaged in a prayer meeting, which lasted for 12 days. When the meeting 
closed there were 32 professions of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Rev. John Nowell 
came and administered the ordinance of Baptism in the Chowan River. Out of this 
originated the desire for a Baptist Church. 

The people in this immediate vicinity, members of Colerain Baptist Church, living 
some distance from their church and realizing the need of and seeing the possibilities of 
a Baptist Church, agreed to take letters and organize themselves into a new church. 

On September 29, 1854, the people met and 18 persons came forward with letters of 
dismission from Colerain Church to organize this fellowship which was named Mars 
Hill. 

The first business of the newly organized church was the adoption of the rules of 
Decorum and Covenant of Faith. Rev. B.B. Williams was called as pastor and served 
until the Civil War. He left the church during the war to serve as a Chaplain in the 
Southern Army. Without pastoral leadership and so many of the men gone to war, the 
people found themselves disorganized and the church struggled to exist. Reorganization 
was necessary in 1866 so that the church might again work in peace, union and 
fellowship. The Rev. B.B. Williams again became pastor of the church on January 1, 
1867. Thus, the Church was launched, and under the blessings of God, it grew in mem- 
bership and everlasting faith. 

On February 16, 1903, a destructive storn swept through the neighborhood, greatly 
damaging the church building. A committee was appointed to examine the building to 
see if it could be repaired or rebuilt. The committee reported that a modern building 
would replace the old one. During the building of the new church building, services 
were held at the Perry School House. 

On September 29, 1906, the members of the Mars Hill Church assembled for the pur- 
pose of dedicating their new building-exactly 50 years after they had first organized 
with 18 members. 

On June 26, 1940, the church was again destroyed; this time by fire. But soon work 
was begun on a modern brick building, designed by men of the church with much 
material and labor being donated by the men of the church. Total cost of construction 
was $18,000.00. 

In 1960 a new parsonage was completed and Rev. Earl Haynes became the first 
pastor to occupy the new parsonage. The debt on this addition to the church property 
was paid off in October, 1962. During Mr. Haynes' ministry. Mars Hill accepted the 
task of becoming a full time church, thus breaking the field with Union Baptist Church. 

In 1969 the church voted to install central heating & air conditioning. In 1972 the lot 
adjoining the church, which had been loaned to the county for the purpose of 
education, was reverted back to the church and a tennis and basketball court was built. 

On April 27, 1975 the church voted to build an addition to the church building which 
was to include 2 classrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and fellowship hall, at an ap- 
proximate cost of $25,000.00, with some of the work to be done by the church mem- 
bers. Dedication services for the Education Building were held in the spring of 1976 and 
the debt on the building was paid off in 1978. 

125 years has passed since the organization of the little church of 18 members, but 
none other than the Lord can measure the good it has accomplished. On September 
29th, Mars Hill Church was 125 years old and we trust it will continue to go forward in 
the Lord's work. 

Pastors who served the Mars Hill Church: B.B. Williams (1853-74), J.C. Fleetwood 
(1874-76), Jeremiah Bunch (1876-79), West Leary (1880-81), D. A. Woodson (1883-86),

1979 ANNUAL OF THE 



MISSIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

Our joint mission project at the Migrant Mission Chapel has undergone a drastic 
change due to the changing of programs by the Federal Government. They switched 
from an all-family type program to one of all young single adults. During the time of 
this transition, the Chapel ministry had to be revamped to meet the needs of this par- 
ticular group. 

Several churches have responded in helping to meet the needs. Some have given 
health kits and books to help with spiritual guidance. The Church Extension Depart- 
ment of the Missions Division of the Baptist State Convention gave 50 Bibles. The Ac- 
teens of the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie gave 25. 

The first group has finished their training and has moved out. A new group was 
scheduled to move in on or about October 8. The training cycle lasts for about 6 mon- 
ths. They are limited to 50 students that are carefully screened from an area of 7 states. 
Rev. Myrick reports that many of the students had become involved in the services and 
really hated to leave by the time the first group completed their work. 

Continue to pray and support this mission project. Pray that the door will be opened 
for others to be done in our association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lonnie R. Armstrong, Chairman 

73. Dr. Hargus Taylor, Chaplain at Chowan College, presented the report on 
Christian Higher Education. He recognized Robert Abrams from Gardner-Webb 
College who also brought greetings from Gardner-Webb. 

74. Gerald Riggs led in singing "Christ Receiveth Sinful Men" accompanied on the 
piano by Tommy Hayes. 

75. The Pastors' Quartet provided special music. 

76. Ralph Harrell, Southern Baptist Missionary to Denya, West Africa, brought the 
closing Missionary message. 

77. Moderator Bobby Cross presented the gavel to Moderator-elect, Robbie Parker. 
He led the closing prayer to adjourn the 97th annual session of the Association.

with this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together 
with the officers of this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each 
church of 100 members and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each 
additional 100 members, an additional messenger, provided that no church shall 
have more than 10 messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and enlist 
its membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the promotion of the 
entire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and 
Saviour Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our 
Association, our State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty or 
rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a 
court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness 
for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition 
of the autonomy of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the autono- 
my of the Association. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelli- 
gence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest consideration and regard for 
itself, its objects and its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and 
principles of this Association, and holding the same doctrines and ordinances, may be 
admitted into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All applications 
shall be referred to the Membership Committee for study. Church desiring member- 
ship should give notice by making application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that con- 
sistently refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association. Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the 
Membership Committee who will report their findings to the next Associational 
meeting. The relationship may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers one 
year after irregularities have been brought to the attention of the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church shall be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, or 
so much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and for 
direction of the promotional education and missionary work of the Association. This 
percentage or amount shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by each 
church treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a letter 
on the form adopted by the Association with such additional information as it may 
deem fitting.

General Board Report 

The association's general board met three times during the year — December, 
June, September. (The March meeting was canceled by the Executive Committee be- 
cause there was no known business that required the attention of the board at that 
time.) 

In each meeting reports were given by the various associational organization direc- 
tors and the board's committees concerning the work being done. 
In the December meeting the following actions were taken: 

1. Upon recommendation of the Executive Committee, accepted Dr. Bruce Whita- 
ker's invitation to hold the associational 150th anniversary (of the organization of the 
Baptist State Convention in 1830) rally on the campus of Chowan College. 

2. Elected the three members-at-large to serve on the Executive Committee during 
the year. They were: Lonnie Armstrong, chairman of the Missions Committee, 
Northampton County: LeRoy Huthmacher, chairman of the Education-Promotion 
Committee, Bertie County; and William Lawrence, moderator of the Bertie Union, 
Hertford County. 



-14- 



The other three committee chairmen were also to serve on the Executive Commit- 
tee in an ex officio (non-voting) capacity, they were: Jack Mace, chairman of 
evangelism; Lemar Wheeler, chairman of stewardship/budget/finance; and Joe 
McLean, chairman of the Christian Life/Public Affairs Committee. 

3. The budget allowance of office rent was increased $10.00 per month because of 
an increase in rent by the owner of the building. 

In the June meeting the board accepted the recommendation of the Executive 
Committee that a 25-member Long Range Strategy/Planning Study Committee be 
authorized to make a study of the association and i*s work with a view to recommend- 
ing some long range objective and goals for the future of the work. The Executive 
Committee was to appoint this committee. 

Lemar Wheeler, chairman of the Budget/Finance Committee presented a 
proposed budget for 1980-81. Item #20 in the budget, convention expense, was dis- 
cussed in detail. Since the 1981 meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention will be in 
Los Angeles, the associational director was authorized to put the current unused 
$400.00 convention expense allocation in a savings account designated for the 
Southern Baptist Convention in Los Angeles, 1981. Rather than increase the $600.00 
in the '81 budget for convention expense, the director was instructed to keep an accu- 
rate account of expenses on the trip; to be reimbursed in full by the treasurer upon 
return from the convention. 

When informed that the Baptist State Convention had adopted a policy suggesting 
that associations with more than $1,000,000.00 church income per year should be 
self-supporting in their base operational budget, the board voted not to request any 
financial support from the state convention during 1981. (Our total church income is 
now over $2,000,000.00 per year.) 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robbie Parker, Moderator 
Mrs. Henry Powell, Clerk 

10. Lonnie Armstrong, chairman, presented the report of the Missions Committee. 

Missions Committee Report 

The Missions Committee reports that the misprant mission ministry has been very 
active with the two groups that have been through the farm workers training center 
this year. These are young adults. Many of them have been in church before. Some of 
them are anxious to do service. Rev. Myrick, the minister, reports they have been 
organized into a functioning Sunday school and for worship. Several professions of 
faith have been made and many commitments to special service through this 
ministry. 

West Chowan Association carries the major responsibility for this work, in a joint 
effort with the Baptist State Convention, the General Baptist Convention and the 
North Carolina Conference of A.M.E, Methodists. Rev. Lemar Wheeler serves as 
treasurer, and all funds are sent to him to be dispersed. 

There is a question of how much longer this type of training will be funded by the 
federal government. But as long as there are people moving through the center, we 
need to make sure there is a ministry carried on. 

Pray for missions and mission support that the gospel may be shared with all 
people. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lonnie R. Armstrong, Chairman

Evangelism Report 



BOLD MISSION THRUST will never become a reality without a BOLD EVAN- 
GELISTIC THRUST. As we concentrate on reaching the lost throughout the world 
we must not overlook those who live in our own area. In 1979 our churches reported a 
grand total of 16,189 members with 190 baptisms. This means that it took 85 to win 
one last year. We must do better than this. After we win them, they must be devel- 
oped. All this is evangelism. 

"Bold Witnessing Churches" was the theme of the 34th statewide evangelism con- 
ference, February 4-5, 1980 at Greensboro. Eight practical evangelism conferences, 
relating to helps for growing churches and discipling members, were held during the 
first afternoon session at the First Baptist Church, Greensboro. About 2,400 pastors 
and lay persons heard inspirational speakers at War Memorial Auditorium. 

Fifty-four associations have involved their churches in a Bold Evangelism Clinic, 
encouraging church leaders to plan specific, on going programs of evangelism in the 
local church, with the use of the notebook, Bold Evangelism Through the Local 
Church. About 30 of our pastors and laymen attended such a clinic in our association 
on May 20, 1980. 

New materials on lay evangelism schools prepared by the evangelism section of the 
Home Mission Board, are now available for use by our churches. The lay evangelism 
school is a one week effort to train youth and adults to become more effective wit- 
nesses for Christ to the lost. 

Evangelism clinics for bi-vocational pastors are now being held across the state to 
assist pastors of rural-small churches, and churches with no baptisms in practical 
ways of evangelism planning to involve members in witnessing. 

All Baptists are urged to participate in the joint statewide evangelistic crusade in 
1982. The theme will be "Here's Hope." Interpretation meetings will be scheduled 
across the state to share suggested plans and basic thrusts for the 1982 joint crusade ef- 
fort, which is sponsored by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and the 
General Baptist State Convention. The simultaneous revival dates for the three areas 
of our state are: Coastal - March 14-28; Piedmont - April 4-18; and Mountain - April 
25-May 9, 1982. Every church is encouraged to plan a revival meeting during one of 
these suggested dates. 

Let us pray that every unsaved person in North Carolina will have the opportunity 
to hear the gospel of Christ by the end of 1982. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Jack Mace 



12. Henry Powell presented the treasurer's repjort.

16. The hymn, "To God Be the Glory" was sung by the congregation. 

17. The Enrollment Committee reported 161 messengers and 48 others present

18. The associational Sunday school report was given as information by Gerald 
Riggs, director. 



The Sunday school is designed to reach people for Christ and for church mem- 
bership through Bible study. Its primary purposes are to reach persons, witness to 
them about Christ and teach them the word of God that they may grow and develop 
as Christians. 

As the outreach organization, the Sunday school is the evangelistic army of the 
church. Members, workers, teachers, and pastor work together to invite and bring 
friends and others to Bible study to tell them about Christ and to lead them to ac- 
cept Him as their Lord and Saviour. 

When properly organized, the Sunday school can carry out the mission of 
outreach and witnessing. It should be organized on an age-graded basis for the pur- 
pose of assigning responsibility for reaching people. Thus every prospect becomes 
the responsibility of some group in the Sunday school. 

Within the Sunday school organization, teachers have the responsibility for the 
overall process of reaching and teaching. They are to teach the word, tell of Christ, 
and make sure every member, from older children through adults, knows how to be 
saved. 

Outreach leaders have the responsibility to mobilize the Sunday school class 
members in youth and adult classes and teachers in preschool and children's de- 
partments to reach people, invite and enroll them in Bible study, and share Christ 
with them as appropriate. 

Every worker is given the responsibility of ministry, visitation, and witnessing. 
They make regular contact with specific members and prospects. 

During this coming Sunday school year 1980-81, I would like to see the churches 
in the West Chowan Association adopt the Arthur Flake plan for Sunday school 
growth. This is the Arthur Flake plan: 1. Find the people - survey the community. 
2. Enlarge the organization - start new classes and departments. 3. Provide the 
space - adjust present space, space outside present building, add new space. 4. Enlist 
and train workers - enlist from resident church membership roll, provide a class for

potential workers. 5. Go after people - have a regular visitation program. 

Let's make 1980-81 Sunday school year the greatest in the life of our churches.

19. The associational church training report was given by Franklin Stansbury, 
associational director. 

Church Training Report 

CHURCH the Sunday Night Place for Training, Worship, and Fellowship. 

The training program of a church is concerned with equipping all God's people 
for the work of Christian service, to build up the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12 TEV). 
The equipping centers were made available in 1979. Equipping centers are a series 
of modules (units of study) grouped around a basic subject area, utilizing a variety 
of learning approaches. Our association has 16 of these modules and you may ob- 
tain them from the associational office. 

During this past year, there have been many activities that have claimed our at- 
tention in the church training area. "M" night was held at Galatia Baptist Church 
in November. Rev. Frank Hollifield, pastor of Creech Memorial Church in 
Ahoskie was the speaker. Others on the program included the youth choir of 
Galatia Church and "Hee Haw" from Nashville from the Elm Grove Church. An 
event well attended with awards in attendance going to Bethel and Galatia 
churches. 

An associational church training workshop was held at Mt. Tabor Church in 
March. As a result, Mt. Tabor started a full church training program in April. 
Youth night was also held in March. We had a packed house at Aulander Church 
with Felix and Betty Wagner as special guests. The youth choir from Union 
Church was also on the program that night. 

As church training director, I attended the Key Leadership Conference at 
Ridgecrest in May. Also had the associational Children's Bible Drill Tournament 
at Creech Memorial Church in Ahoskie in May. We had two churches to partici- 
pate, Mt. Tabor and Askewville. Five participants went on to the state Children's 
Bible Drill Tournament in Asheboro, North Carolina. Those state winners were: 
Battle Whitley, Mt. Tabor Church and Susan Jernigan, Renee Stansbury, Melin- 
da Johnson, and Shirley White, Askewville Church. 

The Key Leadership Conference in August at First Baptist Church in Ahoskie 
was well attended by church training directors and other lay persons interested in a 
training program in their churches. As a result of this conference, we were asked to 
lead a workshop at Union Baptist Church in September and they began a full time 
church training program as of October. 

As associational Children's Bible Drill Rally was held at Askewville Baptist 
Church on Sunday, September 28th. Six churches were represented with a total of 
45 in attendance. Hoping to have more state winners in Children's Bible Drill 
from our association this year. 

Plans are in the making for another great year in church training. "M" Night 
will be held Monday, November 24, 1980, at Creech Memorial Church in Ahoskie. 
The speaker will be Rev. Jack Calloway of Mt. Tabor Baptist Church. 

Southern Baptist Convention had an increased enrollment in church training in 
1978, the first in 18 years. West Chowan is a part of this increase. As associational

director, I wish to express my appreciation to each of the church training associa- 
tional workers, and to all the churches for the cooperation given to me.

Brotherhood Report 

This year has seen an increase of Baptist Men and Royal Ambassador activity in 
our association. We are proud that there are several new organization. Across 
North Carolina, more visibility of the Baptist Men is evident as they are becoming 
more involved in missions. It is the philosophy of Baptist Men to provide opportu- 
nity to every man to minister in the area that is of most interest to him, whether it 
be prison, overseas, home, hospital, rest home, or community missions. 

Events held during the year are as follows: R.A. basketball league, men and boys 
rally, and R.A. track meet with the winners going on to become state champions 
again this year. Training opportunities were the regional workshop in Edenton, 
R.A. counselor training at Union Baptist, and Baptist Men training at Union. 
These were all associational wide opportunities. Upcoming events and opportuni- 
ties include a joint mission action project with the W.M.U. for Odum Prison.

James P. Greer, Pastor 



Historical Sketch of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church 

While the official records prior to 1883 are no longer extant - having been 
destroyed by fire - an account in the April 19, 1837, issue of the Biblical Recorder 
indicates that Pleasant Grove Baptist Church was constituted on April 2, 1837. The 
reported, Samuel J. Wheeler of Murfreesboro, noted: "We have just attended a 
very interesting meeting in this county [Hertford]. A new meeting house was dedi- 
cated and church constituted under the name of Pleasant Grove on Sunday 2nd 
inst [ant]. Brethren Craig, White, Powell, Mitchell, Hawley, Bazemore were 
present, at different times, during the meeting. A protracted meeting was carried 
on some time, and signs of good were visible." The ministers mentioned in 
Wheeler's account were Andrew Murdock Craig, Harvey J. White, Jesse Powell, 
Segar Mitchell (a licentiate of the Ahoskie Church), Francis Hawley, and Stephen 
Bazemore. According to a note which the clerk has appended to records of the 
church, 1883ff., the constituting presbytery consisted of Elders Bazemore and 
Hawley. 



-23- 



On the basis of the church's initial report to the Chowan Baptist Association 
(May 1837), it appears that Pleasant Grove was constituted by eleven (11) members 
who had taken letters of dismission from Connaritsa Baptist Church for that pur- 
pose. While all of these charter members are no longer identifiable, they included 
Godwin Cotton Moore, Abner J. Perry, Augustus (?) Joyner, and the Rev. Harvey 
J. White. White was chosen as the first pastor. Moore, and probably Perry, were 
the first deacons. Abner J. Perry was the first clerk from whom we have any extant 
record, his name being listed as church clerk in the report to the Chowan 
Association in 1842. The lot on which the meeting house had been erected was 
donated by Dr. Godwin Cotton Moore. 

By 1869, at which time the Rev. John Mitchell was pastor, the church had in- 
creased in membership to 135. Moreover, in the same year she reported two Sunday 
schools, with an enrollment of 60 scholars and 10 teachers. The attempt to main- 
tain a Sunday school appears to have been particularly difficult during the earlier 
years. While there is record of a school as early as 1847, the annual reports to the 
Chowan Association indicate that it enjoyed a "checkered" existence, at best. Sun- 
day schools were reported only for the years 1847, 1851, 1856, 1861, 1867-72 and 
1875-79. However, the Sunday school has maintained a continuous existence since 
its last "reorganization" in 1883. 

That same note appended to the church records for 1883ff. indicated the time of 
meeting for the church was set originally for the "first Sunday in each month and 
Saturday before until the beginning of the year 1863, when the time of meeting was 
changed to the fourth Sunday and Saturday before for the convenience of the 
beloved pastor at that time, Rev. John Mitchell, and sometime after the time of 
meeting was changed to the second Sunday and Saturday before which time we con- 
tinue to meet . . . ." The church extended its preaching ministry from one-quarter 
to one-half time in 1933, under the pastoral leadership of the Rev. K.E. Bryant. By 
the time of the pastorate of J.N. Baggett (1968ff.), services were being conducted on 
every Sunday. The church completed the construction of a parsonage for her first 
resident pastor the Rev. Bob Baker, in 1977. 

Church membership grew from those eleven (11) charter members in 1837 to a 
high of three hundred sixty-five (365) members in 1948. Membership in 1980 was 
reported as 250. Meanwhile, the constitution and/or early growth of the following 
"neighbor" churches had been aided, in part, by the accession of former members 
of Pleasant Grove: St. John, Aulander, Center Grove, Woodland, and Menola. 
The annual revival, or "protracted meeting," was a primary occasion for the addi- 
tion of new members, 20 members being added by baptism - for example - following 
a week's protracted meeting in August 1884. 

During her history of one hundred forty-three (143) years. Pleasant Grove has 
been served by twenty-nine (29) different pastors, in addition to others who have 
served on an interim or "supply" basis. The roster of faithful pastors has included: 
Harvey J. White, 1837-41; John Nowell, 1842-.^; James Delke, 1851-?; John Mit- 
chell, 1863-71; Hersey B. Parker, 1872-73; Benjamin Brown Williams, 1874-90; 
Braxton Craig, 1891-95; J.K. Fant, 1896-97; L.M. Curtis, 1898; E.J. Harrell, 1899- 
1906; Robert Lee Gay, 1907-08; Charles Wesley Scarborough, 1909-11; J.W.

Report of the Director of Associational Work 



This past year has been a good one on the work of the West Chowan Baptist Asso- 
ciation. We are deeply grateful to God and to our people for every accomplishment 
of the year. 

All associational organizations have been active and report some of the best 
meetings that we have ever had. Several attendance records have been broken. 

There has been a very good spirit in the association throughout the year — a 
spirit of optimism, a spirit of progress and advance. 

Perhaps one of the most important events of the year was the suggestion that 
came in the December meeting of the Executive Committee that the association go 
into the Long Range Strategy Planning Self-Study as recommended by the Home 
Mission Board. Mr. George Shore, director of the state convention's department of 
associational development came to discuss the self-study program with the Execu- 
tive Committee in its March meeting. In July, the general board authorized the 
Executive Committee to appoint a 25-member Long Range Self-Study Planning 
Committe. In September the Executive Committee selected this committee and they 
are in the process of being contacted and enlisted. To date no one contacted has 
refused to serve on the committee. Just as soon as the committee has been enlisted, 
Mr. Shore will return to train the people and the work will begin. So, this year 
should be one of self-study, planning and preparation to the projecting of an asso- 
ciational program of work to guide and direct us for the next five to 10 years. 
Throughout the year, progress reports will be made and the final report with any 
recommendations should be ready for the 1981 annual session. 

This has been one of the best years financially. We are grateful to our churches 
for the way they have responded to the needs of the association for financial sup- 
port. We began the year with $1,990.72 in the checking account; we closed the year 
with a balance of $6,375.93. 

The associational office continues to be one of the busiest places around. More 
and more of our people are taking advantage of the materials, equipment, and ser- 
vices provided through the office. 

For me personally it has been a busy year. I am grateful for every opportunity to 
serve in any way. Please continue to call on us when we can be of help. There have 
been fewer opportunities just to visit in the churches during the year. If I have not 
been to your church recently, you can be assured that I am on the way; just haven't 
been able to get there yet. 

We look forward to the coming year with greater anticipation than ever before. 
We believe that the Lord has great things in store for the West Chowan in the days 
ahead as we fellowship, share and work together for His Glory. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry Powell, 
Director of Associational Work 

35. The hymn, "Send the Light," was sung by the congregation. 

36. Larry McClure, Baptist State Convention area missionary for Region I, 
showed slides of his work in northeastern North Carolina. 

37. The moderator recognized two pastors who are leaving our association: Ken- 
neth Bunch, pastor of Bethlehem and Wakelon; and Thomas Hupp, pastor of 
Elam. He also welcomed one new pastor who was not present in the afternoon 
session when new pastors were introduced: Rev. Garry Mickey, pastor of the Ross 
Baptist Church. 

38. Larry Bradley led the closing prayer as the first day's session adjourned.

Wednesday, October 22 — Bethlehem Baptist Church 



39. The morning session was called to order by the moderator, Robbie Parker, 
promptly at 10 a.m. 

40. Keith White led in the singing of the opening hymn, "All Hail the Power," 
accompanied on the piano by Tommy Hayes. 

41. Kenneth Bunch read the Scripture and led the opening prayer. 

42. Mr. Bunch then extended a welcome to the 98th annual session. He stated 
that the association had not met at Bethlehem since 1903. 

43. The history of Bethlehem Church was presented by Mr. Bunch. 

History of Bethlehem Baptist Church 

In 1835 a group of Baptists, many of them members of Ahoskie Baptist Church, 
came together and organized the congregation known as Bethlehem. All records of 
the church were destroyed from 1835 to 1842. The church was erected on two acres 
of land donated by Abraham Thomas. It has been said by folks in a position to 
know that the building would have been considered "comfortable" by that day's 
standard. 

Bethlehem was admitted in the Chowan Association during the annual meeting 
at Bethel meeting house in Perquimons County, North Carolina during the May 
12-15, 1836 meeting. The first messengers were W. Hill, A. Thomas, and James L. 
Grimes. 

Elder Thomas Hoggard was the first pastor, serving for 10 years. The minutes 
record numerous improvements to the building and grounds. 

In 1847, only 12 years after its formation, the church sent forth William P. Brit- 
ton, Jr., to be ordained as a minister. Mr. Britton was later called as the church's 
fourth minister. 

The first record of a Sunday school is found in 1854, when Augustus Bass, Sr., 
was appointed superintendant. 

In 1858, a committee was named to be in charge of the construction of a new 
house of worship at Bethlehem Crossroads. The conference agreed that there would 
be "four doors to the meeting house," and that the new one would stand back of the 
old one. The construction started in September, 1858 when 10 men became respon- 
sible for $100.00 each and two agreed to pay $50.00 each. Rev. A.M. Craig was 
pastor in 1859, when the new building was completed. 

The church had a slave gallery across the northern end. This was entered by an 
outside stairway. Women sat on the right hand side of the room and men on the 
left. A five-foot high partition, running down the middle of the church, prevented 
any view of the opposite sex. 

The last colored members were Allen Harrell and Grammar Harrell, who asked 
for their letters of dismission in 1871. Most of the Negro members joined to form a 
new congregation which they named Bethany and stands about one mile from 
Bethlehem. 

It was during the tenure of Rev. L.M. Curtis, that the present building was con- 
structed. Willie Hofler of Gates County agreed to build a "nice, handsome, work- 
manlike building," on the order of the Connaritsa Church for $375.00. It was 
completed in the fall of 1902. 




Kenneth Bunch, Pastor 



Bethlehem History (2) 

Rev. K.E. Bryant was pastor in 1929. During his tenure the classrooms were in- 
creased from two to eight. Bethlehem was hit hard by the Civil War and the De- 
pression, but survived to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 1935. 

On October 5, 1970 under the leadership of Rev. J.I. McMahan, work began on 
the rear section of the church to provide additional classroom, fellowship hall and 
restrooms. It was ready for the first service of 1971. 

Bethlehem and Brantleys Grove were in the same field in the sixties and up until 
1975 when Rev. Ray Craig was called as pastor. At that time Bethlehem went into 
the field with Wakelon Baptist Church. 

In 1975 under the leadership of Rev. Ray Craig, a parsonage was built on the 
church property at the rear end of the church building. It was completed in 1976. 

Bethlehem passed a pleasant milestone on September 16, 1979, when a note burn- 
ing took place to pay off the parsonage and make the church debt free. This took 
place at the 144th anniversary celebration with two former pastors present, Rev. 
Craig, and Rev. McMahan. 

During 1980, Bethlehem celebrated its 145th year. Thus, since that first day in 
1835, the story of a group of dedicated men and women giving their time and tal- 
ents to worship God by building a church to house their vision - Bethlehem Baptist 
Church. Though time has taken her toll Bethlehem Baptist Church still has a task 
to perform. "To lift the banner of Christ to a lost and dying world." A direct quote 
from the pen of a deceased member who wrote a history of the church and has since 
gone to meet her maker sums up the history. "Incidents, fate, and dates in the life 
of a people may be interesting but the real history of a church lies not in tangible 
things but in the influence of the men and women who have been a part of it; those 
who have gone to their reward; those who have gone from the mother church and 
those who are still a part of it. That influence cannot be measured here but in the 
hereafter. Then let those who are still a part of old Bethlehem take courage and get 
inspiration from such noble forbearers and press onward and upward." (Miss Mary 
Thomas)

Ruth Thomas.

51. Robert White, chairman, presented the report of the Committee on Ordina- 
tion. 



The Ordination Committee was called upon three times during the year by mem- 
ber churches for the purpose of examining candidates for the gospel ministry. 

1. Lewiston First Baptist Church requested the examination of Mr. Gary McCul- 
lough, son of the Rev. D.H. McCullough, graduate of Campbell University and 
student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

2. Lasker Baptist Church requested the examination of Mr. V. Rodney Smith, 
pastor of the church and a student at Southeastern Seminary. 

3. Pleasant Grove Baptist Church requested the examination of Mr. Tony 
Futrell, pastor of the Hebron Baptist Church and a student at Chowan College. 

The committee met with each of the candidates and examined them concerning 
their conversion experience, call to the ministry, personal family life, education, 
views of the Bible, the church, the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper, 
feelings and attitudes toward the local church, the association, the state and 
Southern Baptist Conventions and other pertinent questions. 

In each case the council recommended that the candidate be recommended to his 
church for ordination to the gospel ministry. 

Gary McCullough was ordained by the First Baptist Church of Lewiston on 
November 18, 1979. V. Rodney Smith was ordained by the Lasker Church on July 
27, 1980. Tony Futrell was ordained by the Pleasant Grove Church on October 12,

Seminary Extension Report 



Seminary extension had a modest beginning in 1979-80 in our association. One 
class was held during the fall term and one class during the spring term. 

The books of Ephesians and Phillipians were taught by H. LeRoy Huthmacher 
at the Aulander Baptist Church, October 1979 to January 1980. There were four 
students, each was awarded a certificate for this study. 

There were five enrolled in RE 130, "Childhood Education in the Church." 
Four completed the course and received the certificate. 

An attempt is now being made to determine interest in the association so that bet- 
ter plans can be made for the future. A list of courses available through seminary 
extension has been mailed to each pastor with the request that courses in which 
persons may be interested be indicated and returned to me. 

Plans also include the establishment of at least four seminary extension centers 
in the association so that interested persons will be able to attend classes closer to 
their churches and homes.
